    I cannot imagine the trauma of the poor little 8 year old.

    I never want to see any of the missing found deceased, but I hope this is someone that is already known to be missing and being searched for so there can be some closure.

    I would think it would be easy to visually determine if remains were those of a child, and I imagine the article would mention it if they were. If this is an adult, there's a possibility it might be Nancy Moyer, missing from Tenino (30 or 40 miles away) -- here is her thread:

    Sad for everyone involved, but I hope a family will tonight have closure.

    Per the link in the first post (the article is presently showing it was updated at 6:27pm PST), the remains appear to have been there for 1-2 years, and do not appear to be those of a child. They believe they are more likely male than female, but nothing is certain yet.

    They do mention a car having been found abandoned in the vicinity during the 1-2 year time period, but say they will have a forensic pathologist examine the bones before speculating on the individual's identity. The remains are also said to have been disturbed by animals in the area.

    Sheriff’s Office Says Skeletal Remains Belong to an Adult
    NO IDENTITY: Remains Found by Boy to Be Analyzed; Investigators Comb Area For Clues


    Posted: Friday, February 19, 2010 10:39 pm | Updated: 10:43 pm, Fri Feb 19, 2010.

    By The Chronicle | 0 comments

    The skeletal remains found outside Toledo Thursday belong to an adult and were in an advanced state of decomposition, Lewis County Sheriff’s Office Chief Criminal Deputy Gene Seiber said Friday.

    Cadaver dogs from Pierce County scoured the scene throughout the day Friday as Lewis County detectives searched for additional evidence.

    The remains were taken from the scene, though it wasn’t clear as of press time where they were taken.

    An 8-year-old boy found the remains — described as “partial” by a sheriff’s office spokesman — along a clearcut off the 100 block of Cougar Lane Thursday afternoon.

    The rural, wooded area along the Cowlitz River was blocked off by investigators Friday as search teams looked for more clues.

    “He was out there playing and said ‘Hey, look what I found,’”

    8-year-old boy finds human remains near Cowlitz River

    SNIPPED+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++

    There are 100 acres here, and animals had disturbed the remains, police said.

    A preliminary investigation has found that the bones appeared to have been in the area for one to two years.
    A car was found abandoned in the area during that time. But police are being cautious.

    "We are not speculating on who this person may be until we can get a forensic pathologist to look at the bones, analyze them and try to ID the person," Brown said.

    Investigators close to identifying Toledo body

    TOLEDO, Wash. ó The Lewis County sheriff's office says investigators believe they know the identity of a man whose skeletal remains were found Feb. 18 by a boy playing outside near Toledo. The coroner's office is using a forensic anthropologist to help make a positive identification. The sheriff's office says the death does not appear to be the result of a crime.

    It would make sense for these remains to be Nathan Richard Hiatt. He disappeared in 2007 during a bad flood and I've read that the creek he is thought to have fallen into eventually drains into the Cowlitz River. (http://www.winlockwa.govoffice2.com/...17C795A%7D.PDF and search for "Waller Creek")
    Some were spending Wednesday looking for the lost. In the Lewis County town of Winlock, a dive team planned to search normally tiny Wallers Creek for Richard Hiatt, 81, believed to have been swept away when a bank gave out from underneath him.

    Could be Richard, Steadfast. Though he wasn't missing with his car. The info in post 9 led me to believe LE had perhaps thought this UID was the person whose car was found but didn't yet have an official id.

    Here is Richards Charley Project page.

    The more exact location:

    TOLEDO, Wash. - An 8-year-old boy came upon human remains while playing in a brushy area near the Cowlitz River on Thursday afternoon.
    ...

    The grisly discovery was made around 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the 100 block of Cougar Lane, Lewis County sheriff's deputies said.
    http://www.komonews.com/news/local/84777457.html

    The sheriff has this to say:

    Identity of Skeletal Remains Not Confirmed - Released 02/23/10 @ 0830 Hours

    Positive identification of the skeletal remains found in Lewis County last week has not been made at this time. The Sheriff’s Office is currently working with the Lewis County Coroner’s office to identify the human remains utilizing a forensic anthropologist.

    Detectives located physical evidence at the scene leading them to believe they may know the identity of the deceased; however, further investigation is needed to confirm the identity.

    The remains belong to an adult male. There does not appear to be foul play at this time.

    Further release(s) will be forthcoming once the body is identified.
    No further releases so far which might mean they haven't identified him yet or it might not.
