"This person has been missing for nearly three years," said Pyle. "We will not release any name until we are certain of the identity."
The Calhoun Police Department are currently investigating a new lead in a missing person's case, which involves a local man who was reported missing by family members back in August 2010, said CPD Chief Garry Moss on Thursday afternoon.
The CPD is working in conjunction with the Cobb County Police Department, who discovered evidence linking human remains that were found near I-75 in Kennesaw, Ga. The remains were discovered Wednesday, May 23, by a man picking up cans along the interstate in Cobb County, said the CPD press release.
“Due to the evidence obtained in this case we strongly believe the remains are that of our
missing person. However, we are not releasing the name of the victim until DNA testing
has been completed and family members have been notified,” said Det. Lt. Tony Pyle.
Calhoun Times will continue to follow this investigation, and update this story when information is received from the CPD.
