The Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) say human remains were discovered near Rimini on Wednesday.
A U.S. Forest Service ranger discovered a human skull in the Minnehaha area around 10:15 a.m. on August 7.
LCSO Search and Rescue performed a grid search in the area and were able to locate more human bones and tissue samples.
The remains have been sent to the Missoula Crime Lab for analysis.
The skull does does not appear to be a child's, but the anthropology department of the University of Montana will need to identify the age and gender.
Anyone with information about the remains are encouraged to contact the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office at (406) 447-8235.
