well, there are 6-7 ohio people missing currently (in the missing forum) however none of them are from this immediate area. That being said, Cleveland is only 40-45 minutes away as there is access to the interstate near Rittman. Here are threads for those missing in Ohio currently:

OH OH - Katelyn Markham, 22, Fairfield, 14 August 2011 - #4 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
Katelyn Markham

OH OH Patrick Borally ; FBI looking for this Richmond Heights man missing 26 Sept. 2011 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
Pat Borally

OH OH - 3 teenage girls, Parma, 25 September 2011 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
3 teens from Parma

OH OH - James 'Jim' Donofrio, 64, Youngstown, 25 Sept 2011 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
Jim Donofrio

OH OH - Caitlin Anderson, 15, London, 26 September, 2011 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
Caitlin Anderson

-------

so that is seven that are recently missing

I am trying to figure out which guy was known for leaving his vics in the woods somewhere around there. No one suspected him, he had a cabin in one of the towns....I dont know, perhaps I am blending folks together.

There are 133 pages 10 on each page of adults (= 1330) and 84 page with 10 on each page for children (= 840)

That is about 2170 Missing people in Ohio....

this is S. Main street woods near the creek on morton salt property where the remains were allegedly found. As a college student I used to work at PCA which was on the same property as MS (it has since closed) but I know this area well.


zoomed out view (point A being the actual plant). If you scroll up you will see how close to I-76 this is. Lots of truck traffic in and out of the plant area fwiw

Rittman is only 46 miles or so from Cleveland, where Amanda Berry is missing from. By this point, though, I imagine Amanda's remains would be skeletal.

Guess I always get a little twinge of dark hope whenever bodies pop up in Ohio that maybe she's been found......

This is slightly OT, but I clicked on your siggy about Amanda Berry and came up with everything BUT info on her. Check it out. Do you have something more up to date I could read?

Nurse, can the general public access that area of the Morton property? Are there any fences or restrictions?

Wayne County Coroner Dr. Amy Jolliff confirms to Fox 8 News that the remains are indeed human, adding that they have almost certainly been at that location for more than six months.

they have up no trespassing signs, etc but people go back there... in fact iirc it was a hunter that found the remains... I am not sure if MS allows hunters back there with permission or if this guy was just out there in the woods...

OH - Rittman - Human Remains, September 2011

((I hope I am doing this right.... I have never started a thread here before))

http://www.fox8.com/news/wjw-news-hu...,4945261.story

Quote:
Authorities in Wayne County have started an investigation following the discovery of human remains in the city of Rittman, Fox 8's Stacey Frey reports.

According to a spokesperson for the Rittman Police Department, a hunter made the discovery Tuesday in an isolated, wooded area on the property of the city's expansive Morton Salt facility.

Investigators on the scene have not been able to determine the gender of the badly decomposed body. Thus, there is also no identity or age associated with the remains. The cause of death is still under investigation.

Wayne County Coroner Dr. Amy Jolliff confirms to Fox 8 News that the remains are indeed human, adding that they have almost certainly been at that location for more than six months.

Fox8 Article 9/28/11
In your link, this caught my eye:
(maybe this is homicide related)


Dr. Amy Jolliff, the Wayne County coroner who is overseeing the investigation, confirms to Fox 8 News that an initial examination indicated the remains are indeed human, adding they have likely been at that location for more than six months. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation is also at the scene.

No arrests have yet been made

Wayne County coroner Dr. Amy Joliff confirmed to Fox 8 on Wednesday that the bones are human and that they have been there for more than six months.

Investigators would not confirm if they found any clothing or other personal articles at the scene.

"We have to find as much evidence as we can and then try to piece it together and see what we have,'' said Sgt. Robert Shows of the Rittman Police.

Sgt. Pauley told Fox 8 Wednesday afternoon that they did not even have a complete body.

first map is the field/creek area on MS property where bones were found

second map is a zoomed out view of the plant area.

I used to work at PCA (packaging corporation of america) when in college which is on this same property as MS (has since closed) but I know the area (grew up a few miles away in Sterling, Ohio). There is a lot of truck traffic at this plant and the area has close access to I-76

Wayne County Coroner Amy Jolliff was overseeing the scene, Shows said. The area where the bones were found was about one mile west of South Main Street down a cinder road then "deep into the woods," Shows said.

BCI agents are working on grid-by-grid pattern to locate more bones. Shows said they are starting in a known area and working outward.

There are no reports of missing people in which to link the remains, Shows said.

Some people have speculated the bones could be from Susan Ryan, a Wooster woman who went missing June 5, 2010.


"It's a possibility, but from what we have, we can't tell. We have to collect the information," Shows said, adding later, "We don't have a dental record. We have to collect dental evidence."

The clothes the person was wearing have deteriorated. Flooding in the spring, the hot summer weather and possible animal activity have provided challenges.

more at link including video

edited to add one more snip:

Quote:
The bones are the second set to be found in the area in the past three years. In September 2008, the bones of an African American woman were found off of a township road in Holmes County. The woman still is unidentified and listed on the FBI's Violent Criminal Apprehension Program website.
