SALT LAKE CITY -- Unified police are trying to identify the remains of a man found in the Olympus Cove area.

People looking for shed antlers discovered a human skull last month just north of Millcreek Canyon.

Unified Police Department detectives and investigators from the State Medical Examiner's Office and the State Division of History-Antiquities Section returned to the site and found several more bones.

They believe the remains are of a white male between 17 and 22 years old. Detectives are comparing the remains to missing persons cases on file. Dental records may aid in the identification of this individual.

Police say the remains may have been there more than 10 years.

Police are asking anyone with information about the identity of the individual contact Unified Police Violent Crimes Unit Detective Brent Adamson at 801-743-5915.
