(BLOOMINGTON) - Authorities say they're trying to identify skeletal remains that have been discovered in a wooded area in Bloomington.

Capt. Troy Thomas of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office says the remains found Monday on the city's east side are believed to be those of a missing person whose case the office was working on.

Bloomington police and an evidence technician were called to a wooded area in the 830 block of South Clarizz Boulevard at 8:30 Monday morning.

Bloomington Police Sgt. Pam Gladish says the remains appear to those of a white male in his early 20s, but investigators won't be certain until medical examiners have finished their work.

Officials with the Bloomington Police Department and the Monroe County coroner's office did not believe the remains had any connection to the case of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.
