Fort Worth police will wait until daylight to continue to search for a possible dead body in Haltom City.

Fort Worth police have ended a search at a Haltom City creek.

Police said Monday morning that a prisoner told them he had knowledge of a body in the creek, but beyond that investigators have provided no further details on the case. 

Officers searched the area all day Monday and said they found no evidence of a crime.

Police have not said to what case the search is related.

Overnight Sunday, officers established and guarded a perimeter around the search site along the 6200 block of Little Fossil Road. 

Residents in the area told NBC 5 they saw officers with police dogs searching the rural, thick terrain Sunday night before sundown. Residents also said they saw a man dressed in jail overalls and shackles talking with several detectives on scene.

Fort Worth police have also set up a large RV that will be used to help process evidence during the investigation.

NBC 5 has crews on scene to gather more information. As this is a developing story, details may change.
