MORTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana State Police say a search turned up more human skeletal remains in western Indiana after a mushroom hunter found possible remains last week.

Police say the first remains were found Thursday in northwestern Putnam County near woods in the Van Bibber Lake area.

Detectives, the county coroner, and others returned to the site Sunday. Krista Latham, an associate professor of biology and Anthropology at University of Indianapolis, and four of her students participated in the search and found additional remains.

State police aren’t speculating about the identity of the person whose remains were found, but they say detectives are looking into the possibility that the remains could be linked to the disappearance of a person reported missing on Nov. 15, 2016.
