PENINSULA, Ohio (AP) — Investigators plan to return to a national park in northeast Ohio to search for any further evidence a day after skeletal human remains and clothing were found off a trail.
Authorities at Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron say a jawbone and other small bones were found Tuesday. The medical examiner's office said the gender, age and race of the person who died weren't immediately known.
A park service spokeswoman said hikers first spotted the jawbone, and searchers then found additional human remains, including a partial skull.
Chief Ranger Chris Ryan says it's unclear how long the remains had been there. Ryan told WKYC-TV that rangers and possibly federal investigators would return to the scene Wednesday.
