We should be aware of the fact that as hunters we are quite often the discoverer of human remains out in the wild as we walk the areas where perpetrators often dump their victims. I believe we could discover unusual items out there that are "out of place" so to speak, as well as human remains, more frequently than we do and serve our fellow man in this way. Clothing or bones one can't identify should be reported to the police immediately.

Let us post missing persons and the areas they were last seen here then keep our eyes peeled.

I heard a news story this past winter about 39 yr. old Mary Denise Lands. Mary went missing from the area of Walden Ponds Apartments in the Marshall Michigan area March 12, 2004. She was last see wearing blue scrubs. This is a link to the MI State Police Missing persons sight and the page devoted to Mary Lands.,1607,7-123...6405--,00.html
P.S. I had posted this in the Campfire but thought it would be seen by the right readers more here.

here are some tips since i am a cj student who just finished forensics

if you come upon remains do not touch anything

try not to disturb the area in any way some types of evidence may still be viable

if yolu have any rope on hand place it 15 to 20 ft out from the remains in a circle or as beest as you can do to create a perimeter

and write down what ever you did in the area from the moment you found the remains till the authorities arrive

again dont touch anything

and you initial veiw of the remains you need to remember as many details as you can and write those down

what you saw may help the authorities gather a key peice of evidence
so remember averything you saw

just a few tips to help the authorities solve the crime :attention :attention
