BELLEFONTE, Pa. — A Pennsylvania police chief says the latest reported tip about the whereabouts of a missing prosecutor connected to former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's child sex abuse case has turned out to be unfounded.

Bellefonte (BEHL'-fawnt) police Chief Shawn Weaver says the FBI took an inmate to a location where he claimed Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar (GREE'-kar) was buried and nothing was found.

Gricar disappeared in 2005, seven years after he decided against charging Sandusky after a boy's mother complained to State College police about abuse.

Weaver says the inmate claimed that Gricar was in debt to a Hells Angel's group and that one of its members – a man Gricar prosecuted for beating a man with a baseball bat – also killed Gricar.
