ROOSEVELT, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island have confirmed the discovery of remains in a large wooded area after receiving information from federal law enforcement officials. They also say a search is ongoing for possible additional bodies.

Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick of the Nassau County Police homicide squad said Friday the remains of an unidentified male were found in a 27-acre wooded area in the hamlet of Roosevelt.

He declined to describe the condition of the remains, how long they may have been there and what may have happened to the person.

State police cadaver dogs were continuing to search the area.

Fitzpatrick says officials in the Department of Homeland Security relayed information from someone saying that law enforcement should search the area. He did not elaborate.
