BUFORD, Ga. (AP) - Police say a human skull and bones have been found in a suitcase near an interstate north of Atlanta.

Gwinnett police Cpl. Michele Pihera says a construction worker found the suitcase Friday morning while he relieved himself about 80 yards into a wooded area along I-85. Pihera says the suitcase appeared to have been in the wooded area for an extended amount of time.

No identification has been made of the bones.

Pihera says the lead detective on the case will search through missing persons cases in Gwinnett and other agencies in an effort to trace the bones back to the specific person.
