OH - Celina, Male Skeletal UP14649, 20-35, at Grand Lake St Mary's, Jan'16
Bones recovered in a state park south of Celina, Ohio, near Coldwater Creek have been identified as human, specifically that of a 20-35-year-old man. They are believed to have been placed in the wooded area sometime within the last six months.
It is one victim – a 25-30-year-old man, 5-feet-7 to 6-feet-11 tall. A race was not determined.

DNA pulled from human bones discovered in a western Ohio state park at the beginning of the year has not been hitched to anyone within the FBI’s database.
Officials are working to identify any missing 20-35-year-old men that went missing between Jan. 1, 2015 and Dec. 31, 2015 that matches the description that investigators determined the bones belonged to. Grey said officials searched for missing persons in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and found six people who match those characteristics.

I expanded that age range by a few years, and have 112 matches returned. That height estimates is cray cray. I think I'd need more info to even begin to narrow the list down.

Yeah the height range is buck wild, I bet its a typo and actually should read 5'7 to 5'11.
The articles editing is clearly not the sharpest, seeing as the age range is listed as 20-35 in one place and 25-30 in the other (im assuming 20-35 is correct bc thats what is noted in the second article).

Grey asked for the public’s help. Anyone with any tips can reach out to the sheriff’s office through email at www.mercercountysheriff.org or call its tip line (567) 890-TIPS (8477) or the detectives at (419) 586-1450. Grey said his office is dedicated to solving the case.
“I still have my fingers crossed and my hopes up that we’re going to get a DNA hit on the computer system,” said Grey. “I don’t like having unsolved deaths in this county.
“This case if difficult for me because there’s a family out there. We owe it to that person to do the best we can and we owe it to their family to do the best we can do give them closure, even if it’s not the closure they want.”
