Human remains found in the Grand Canyon

GRAND CANYON, ARIZ.  Park Rangers recently recovered skeletal remains from the Hermit Creek drainage within Grand Canyon National Park. The remains have been confirmed by the Coconino County Medical Examiner as human.

Found in an area with abandoned camping gear, these remains may be associated with a 2010 disappearance of a male from Tucson, Ariz.

DNA testing is being conducted to positively identify the remains and an investigation is being conducted by the National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner.
