MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mobile County Deputies said they have finished processing a crime scene off Dep Busby road, where human remains were discovered late Monday.
Investigators returned in the daylight to recover more skeletal remains.
Officials told FOX10 they do not have a complete skeleton, but do have enough to move forward with their investigation.
"I mean the skull was pretty much in tact the teeth appear to he in good condition," said Lt. Paul Burch with the Mobile County Sheriffs Office.
Now begins the department's tough task of identifying the remains.
In recent months, search crews have been seen combing through various wooded areas to find missing persons across South Alabama.
Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran said Investigators are now pulling those open missing persons records to find a match.
"Just in mobile county alone we've got five people that we know are missing, and we'll look at all of those five people. And then once we look at those, we'll of course look at the surrounding counties,' Cochran said.
In the files are things like dental records, DNA, and detailed physical descriptions.
"These readily come to mind that are the most immediate missing. Garland Ford, Jonathan Lions, Randall Parnell, Michael blue Watson, Jeffrey Holloman," he said.
Sheriff Cochran told FOX10 the bones found off Dep Busby road are smaller in size. The remains were sent to the University of West Florida.
