    Body Found in Polk County Could be Missing Person

    Sheriff Steven Bruce says he thinks the man was a missing person out of Ohio, but nothing's been confirmed.

    I guess we can assume it's a male.

    Looks like they have not identified the remains yet. They are going to use DNA and dental records. No foul play indicated.

    Near the body, authorities found a backpack, a tent and a sleeping bag. Based on the foliage around it, the remains appear to have been there more than a year.

    Bruce said though his office has a possible identity of the remains, it is unconfirmed.
    “If this individual is who we think he is, he was reported missing in 2009 out of Ohio.”

    Sounds like the guy must have had some ID on him, but they need to figure out a way to confirm it.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    I keep checking the news, but never see anything about this. I emailed the Sheriff's Office several days ago, but never received a response. I really hope they can match this one up and I hope they let the media know about it.
