Two rabbit hunters discovered human remains while hunting near the Wilson Rock area of the Arkansas River on Christmas Day.
The hunters originally located remains in a brush covered area and then contacted authorities who located more remains during their investigation and search of the area. According to Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane the remains are believed to be that of a single individual.
The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office has requested dental records of an individual missing from the area since 2012 to check for a possible match.
"It'll take some time to positively identify through dental records," added Lane.
