Former classmates reunited in Michigan to uncover a time capsule buried 30 years ago. The result? They couldn’t find it.

The seven classmates and two teachers spent two hours Sunday digging outside Coloma Junior High in southwestern Michigan. One woman said she remembers putting a Michael Jackson cassette in the box in 1988, along with assignments from an accelerated writing program.

“We had our own constitution and I actually sewed a flag for our country. I think the flag is in the time capsule’, she told The local paper.

A teacher said information about the capsule was filed away but lost.

“We are all kind of in the dark trying to remember what was in it and where it is,” She said.

The Superintendent said the group might use a different metal detector and keep hunting.

“It was an English class,” She said. “We didn’t know how to measure.”
