DOVER PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Police want the public’s help identifying remains found more than a decade ago in upstate New York near the Connecticut border.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports (pojonews.co/1ODioZL) that New York State Police discovered skeletal remains in May 2002 in a wooded area near a golf course in the Dutchess County town Amenia, on the Connecticut border 60 miles southeast of Albany.

Troopers say the remains were determined to be those of white man about 5 feet, 6 inches tall with dark or graying hair and possibly of South American descent.

Police say the remains were lying in the woods for nine months when they were discovered.

Troopers say facial reconstruction has been completed and the images of a possible appearance of the man have been released by state police.
