BANKS CROSSING, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says human skeletal remains have been found in a wooded area of northeast Georgia.

GBI spokeswoman Sherry Lang says agents and Banks County Sheriff’s deputies found remains and other items in an area in Banks Crossing near the intersection of Highway 441 and Interstate 85 Monday evening. Banks Crossing is about 24 miles north of Athens.

Lang says a University of Georgia anthropologist examined the remains and determined that they were human.

The person’s identity and cause of death are unclear.
