NEWVILLE, Pa. (AP) - State police and the district attorney are investigating a human skeleton found by hunters in central Pennsylvania.

Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed says it appears the remains are those of a man whose body has been in the area for at least a couple of years. The bones were found in Cooke Township, near Newville, about 30 miles west of Harrisburg on Saturday afternoon.

The prosecutor is hoping investigators will be able to gather DNA from the bones and perhaps have an artist do a facial reconstruction drawing to help identify the body. No clothes or other evidence were found nearby.

The remains were found near Route 33 and Ridge Road.
