PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, Oklahoma - OSBI is investigating after human remains were found in a remote area in Clayton, Oklahoma.

The remains were found by a survey crew just over a week ago on the side of Flag Pole Mountain. The Pushmataha County Sheriff’s Office called OSBI to transport the remains to an anthropology unit in Tulsa.

"Right now, we have no further updates of who they are, and it may take a while before they can figure out who the remains belong to," said Pushmataha County Undersheriff Quentin Lee.

Officials say the bones were above ground and not buried. They estimate they have been there for a least a year but it's too early to tell any other details.
