Cherokee County authorities trying to ID bones

WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) -- The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is trying to identify skeletal remains found Saturday afternoon in a wooded area on South Cherokee Lane.

Spokesman Lt. Jay Baker told 11Alive's Duffie Dixon a biologist searching for snakes instead found a set of bones.  The bones appear to be that of a man.  

Investigators also found a pair of red, size 13 Adidas shoes, blue jeans and burgundy shorts underneath.

Authorities are unsure how long the remains have been in the woods.  

The remains are at the  Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab for analysis.

Baker said his department has no outstanding missing persons cases that match the description of what was found. His department is now checking with other neighboring agencies.
