HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. (AP) — The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says hunters found human skeletal remains along the Shenandoah River in Harpers Ferry.

The Herald-Mail ( ) reports that hunters made the discovery on Thanksgiving. Sheriff Peter Dougherty believes the remains had been there at least a year, or longer.

The remains are being examined at the West Virginia State Medical Examiner's Office.

Dougherty said he expects it will be a week to 10 days before he receives information from the medical examiner's office regarding the person's gender or age.

He said a forensic team will also investigate the area where the remains were found.

Dougherty said investigators do not have any leads on the identity of the remains.
