NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) _ Newtown officials say they’re trying to find a 1980 time capsule buried somewhere at Sandy Hook Elementary School before crews demolish the building where 20 first-graders and six educators were killed in December.

First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra told The News-Times of Danbury (http://bit.ly/1fdRDWn ) that she recently learned about the time capsule that contains artwork, pictures and other school items.

Llodra and school officials are seeking people who were fifth-graders at the school in 1980 and who remember where the capsule is buried.

The school is set to be demolished at the end of the year and officials are proposing to build a new school on the same property.

Llodra says if the time capsule is found, it can either be opened or reburied outside the new school.
