An investigation is now underway after human remains were discovered along Wilson Cove Road in Asheville, North Carolina.

As of Thursday morning, Bumcombe County deputies are using cadaver dogs to comb the area.

The remains have not yet been identified, but deputies say they are working with the medical examiner’s office to hopefully put a name to the remains.

Notably, this is the same area where deputies conducted searches over the summer for a person who was reported missing.

Deputies do believe the remains are pertaining to that missing individual, although according to Aaron Sarver, the public information officer for Bumcombe County, a name will not be released until the remains have been officially identified.
