Two men disguised as police officers stole $500 million worth of artwork from a Boston museum in 1990.

Now the FBI has confirmed recent sightings of the work that was taken from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston.com reports.

The art included work by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Manet.

FBI Special Agent Geoff Kelly, who is in charge of the theft, identified three persons of interest, all of whom have ties to organized crime: Carmello Merlino, Robert Guarente, and Robert Gentile.

Gentile, who is the only one of trio still alive, said he knows nothing of the missing artwork.
