GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

An investigation is underway after officials were called to a site where bones were discovered in a wooded area Thursday.

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office says the remains were found off Groce Road near Blackberry Valley Road.

Investigators are unsure how long the skeletal remains have been there, as well as if they are of a male or female. The cause of death has also not been determined.

If you have any information that may help solve this case, call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

Kent Dill with the Greenville County Coroner's Office says investigators are also working to figure out how the person died.

"The question is, what happened to this individual? Is this a case that somebody died of natural causes or is there more to the case than that?" Dill explained.

Master Deputy Jonathan Smith says the Sheriff's Office is looking through missing persons reports. Smith tells 7 On Your Side, there are 57 active cases of missing people in Greenville County. He says deputies are also contacting other agencies throughout the state as they search for clues.

"We'll start sending out alerts to other counties as well to let them know, hey this what we've got, we'll start getting information from those counties also," he explained.
