OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office says remains believed to be a missing 60-year-old Olympia woman were determined to be non-human.

Sgt. Carla Carter said in a Monday news release that remains found Saturday at a refuse site in a remote Washington location were tested and are not linked to Gail Doyle.

Investigators said Doyle was last seen June 2 arguing with 66-year-old James Stidd at a tavern.

A Thurston County Superior Court judge on Friday ordered Stidd held on $2 million bail for investigation of second-degree murder and gun charges.

A warrant for his arrest was issued Wednesday after detectives found evidence at his home linking him to Doyle’s disappearance. He was arrested by state troopers Thursday near Ritzville.

Detectives continue to search the refuse site and are working to find Doyle.
