"It is estimated that the remains have been exposed to the elements for a period of at least six months," said a news alert from the department.
After preliminary testing, it has been determined that the remains are of a petite female, at least 30 years of age, shoulder length wavy dark brown hair with light colored highlights."
The department released photos of clothing found with the remains in hopes that someone would recognize it. Among them are:

- A pair of dark colored athletic yoga style pants made of spandex/cotton with light colored stripes down the side of both legs and a rear positioned zipper. The inseam measured approximately 29”-30”.

The woman also had a very distinct gold colored dental bridge on her left lower jaw and possibly had a broken nose at some point in her life, the press release states.
