The additional search was conducted Monday because the loss of foliage during the fall provided more visibility in the wooded area.

At around 9:50 a.m., detectives found human skeletal remains in the wooded area, according to state police.

The scene was processed, troopers said, and the remains were taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for examination and identification.
