A sheriff's official has said no bodies were found at a Texas farmhouse where a person claiming to be a psychic told officials multiple bodies were buried.

Captain Rex Evans of Liberty County Sheriff's Department said there is no indication of bodies being anywhere on the rural property about 70 miles north-east of Houston.

Officials said the sheriff's office received two calls from a person who said dismembered bodies would be found.

Captain Evans said authorities took the tip seriously partly because the caller had details about the interior of the house that only someone who had seen it could have known.

He said authorities now have a name and number for the caller and are working to track them down
