ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers are trying to identify human remains discovered by a sheep hunter near Seward.

Authorities say the hunter was hiking near the Tonsina Creek Trail when he found a partial jawbone at the top of a mountain.

Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen tells KTUU (http://bit.ly/1rGhaP8 ) that there are eight people listed as missing in the Seward and Crown Point area since 1993. Three are women and five are men.

The state medical examiner’s office is trying to identify the person and the cause of death.

The remains were discovered on Monday.
