SAN FRANCISCO—Authorities from the San Francisco Police Department served a search warrant at a residence on the 1100 block of Masonic Street on Tuesday, January 29, 2013.  The warrant was in connection to a 1984 cold case involving the disappearance of Kevin Collins.  Collins disappeared on February 10, 1984 after being abducted on a San Francisco street as he was leaving basketball practice. He was a fourth-grader who attended St.Agnes School.

Authorities would like to indicate that the current resident where the search warrant was presented is not a suspect in the case.

“During today’s investigation, cadaver dogs indicated the presence of possible remains under the concrete floor of the garage. The concrete was removed and several bones were located. The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office responded to the scene and assumed custody of the bones. A preliminary assessment of the bones indicates that they are from an animal and not human in origin. However, further analysis of the bones is necessary. This is an ongoing investigation and the search warrant remains under seal,” stated a press release from the SFPD website.

The FBI and Alameda County Sheriff’s Office participated with the SF Police Investigators and Major Crimes Unit with investigating the property.  Police are asking anyone with information on the case to contact the SFPD Major Crimes Unit at 415-553-1145. Information can be given anonymously at 415-575-4444 or via text message to Text a Tip at TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
