Hunter discovers human remains in Columbia County

Posted:

MAGNOLIA (AP) - Authorities in south Arkansas say human remains discovered by a hunter in Columbia County may belong to an elderly man who went missing in March.

Ouachita County Sheriff David Norwood says investigators believe the remains belong to 77-year-old Grady Arnold, who walked away from his home in Stephens on March 21.

The sheriff says authorities are awaiting DNA results to identify the remains.

The Banner-News reports that a deer hunter discovered bones Friday afternoon as he was coming out of his deer stand in a heavily wooded area in Columbia County.

Norwood says the remains were found about 12 miles from where Arnold was last seen and in the area where Arnold was born and raised.
