SOUTHBURY, Conn. — Human remains were found during a search in Southbury on Monday morning, Connecticut State Police confirmed to FOX61 Wednesday night.
Troopers said multiple agencies, including the Western District Major Crimes, an FBI Task Force, and Naugatuck police, conducted an additional search for a person who was reported missing on April 19, 2021, from Berkshire Road in Southbury.
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.
