MEDWAY, Massachusetts (NECN) -- The front lawn of Medway's Town Hall is now the site of an archeological quest, a dig designed to find a piece of history buried in 1963 to celebrate the town's 250th anniversary.

"They're probably going to find Jimmy Hoffa's body before we find the 250th time capsule," said Medway selectman Dennis Crowley.

Since there are no formal records, sonar equipment has been brought in to try and locate the 50-year-old capsule. But so far, nothing. Now 76, Mickey Rojee says he was at Town Hall in Medway on the night the pod was put in the ground.

"There must have been close to 1,000 people here on that Friday night. But this is all new, so I think maybe when they did it, they just bypassed the capsule," said Rojee said.

Medway was able to find the time capsule from the town's 275th birthday. The other one is thought to be buried beneath Town Hall and is too expensive to dig up.
