The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office said it is waiting on the Medical Examiner to identify human remains found over the weekend.  

Deputies are waiting for the medical examiner to determine who the person was, and how he or she died. Hunters found the remains Sunday morning in a wooded area near 61st Street and North Xanthus Avenue. Deputies said they are not sure if the remains are from a man or a woman. 

While investigators are waiting for answers, they are mindful of several missing people from the Turley area,  including Jack Grimes, Dewayne Selby, and Selby's mom, Glenda Parton. 

"We do have actually four missing person cases in that area. Three that are related the same, one is a federal investigation. So we don't know yet if this is one of the people that we are looking for. So that's why the Medical Examiner plays such a vital role in helping us know where to go with this investigation,” Casey Roebuck with TCSO said. 

The other missing person is Shannon Miller. Roebuck said because Miller is a tribal member, his case is now being handled at a federal level. If you see any of them, call 911.
