TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police are investigating skeletal human remains found in field Saturday afternoon.
Officials said men cutting down brush near East Pine Street and Highway 11 called police around 1 p.m. to report finding a body.
When officers arrived, they found remains of a skull, ribcage and leg bones. A pair of shoes were also found nearby.
The cause of death and identity is unknown at this time, but investigators say the current evidence does not indicate a violent death. The medical examiner was called to the scene to assist.
Investigators returned Sunday to search the area again with more daylight. There, they found more bones, hair, nails and teeth.
They believe the remains belonged to an adult.
Homicide detectives believe the remains may belong to a man who went missing in the area in early August. They say they believe they belong to a man in his late twenties or early thirties.
Evidence will be used to confirm the identification of the remains through dental and medical records.
