Human remains discovered off Rivers Bend Court in Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department is investigating the discovery of human remains off Rivers Bend Court.

We know it was a group of teens who found the remains while walking through a wooded area near Whitefield Avenue and Rivers Bend Court. Investigators tell us the remains were bones that had been there for months.

SCMPD detectives believe it could be the body of a man reported missing in early 2017, although a positive identification has not been made.

An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 20, but police have since said further testing is required to positively identify the deceased. There are no immediate signs of foul play.
