FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in northern Arizona are trying to identify human remains that were found by a rancher between Fredonia and Jacob Lake.

Coconino County Sheriff’s officials say they received a call Friday from the authorities in Utah’s Kane County about the discovery of skeletal remains.

They say a rancher was working his cattle range area just south of State Highway 89A and located the remains along with clothing, boots and a daypack under a tree.

Coconino County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the area and are currently processing the scene.

They say deputies found a handgun under the remains.

Detectives now are checking missing person cases and attempting to identify the remains.
