BESSEMER, Ala. (AP) - Officials are trying to identify remains found inside a burned minivan belonging to a missing Bessemer man.

Bessemer Deputy Police Chief Mike Roper says the van was found Monday by someone riding a four-wheeler in a remote area of the Cahaba River Wildlife Management Area.

The van belonged to 75-year-old James Andrew Morrison, who was reported missing on Jan. 3. Morrison’s daughter, Frances Gann, previously said she was supposed to meet her father that night, but he never showed up.

Shelby County deputies and Bessemer police officers are trying to piece together the events that led to the discovery of Morrison’s vehicle. Officials say positive identification of the remains could take some time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities.
