CLINTON, S.C. - Skeletal remains were found Tuesday near a firing range operated by Clinton Public Safety.

Officials say a logging company contractor was surveying the wooded area owned by the city on Tuesday afternoon. He discovered the bones at the location off Highway 308 near Beards Fork Creek. 

When investigators arrived on scene, they said the remains appear to have been there for "quite some time."

Clinton Public Safety Director, Robin Morse, said they removed the remains along with several other pieces of evidence.

Those remains will be taken to the Laurens County Coroner to be identified through dental records.

Morse said they have at least one missing persons case they are looking into, but it is too soon to make any assumptions until they can verify an identity.

We asked morse if any foul play could have been involved.

"Nothing jumped out at us. This is very early in the game and we have a lot of work we have to do on this," said Morse.

The Laurens County Sheriff's Office and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division assisted the Clinton Public Safety Department in their investigation. 

This is the second time this year skeletal remains have been found in Laurens County. In January, investigators identified remains of missing woman Dorothy Madden. Madden had been missing since Summer 2013. Investigators ruled out any foul play.
