HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police say members of a volunteer search group have found part of a human torso along west Interstate 10.

An official with Texas EquuSearch said Monday that relatives of a missing 22-year-old homeless man believe he’s the victim. Police and a coroner didn’t immediately identify the remains located Sunday.

Texas EquuSearch founder Tim Miller says the family last saw the missing man on March 17, to celebrate his birthday. Police spokesman John Cannon says the man reported missing April 10 has mental health issues.

Relatives recently asked volunteers to search near a homeless camp. Miller says volunteers and the father Saturday discovered bloody items allegedly belonging to the son and contacted police.

Police knew that volunteers, who found the torso in a brushy area, resumed searching after officers left.
