A Fish and Game Officer working with his dog Sunday afternoon discovered human remains along the west bank of the Sacramento River, across from Scotty's Landing.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office and Chico State Forensic Anthropologists responded to the scene around noon Sunday. They say it appears as though the remains were there for at least a year.

Investigators say the remains are of an older man, but no other information is available at this time. The sheriff's office is in the process of contacting other law enforcement agencies for lists of missing people.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Butte County Sheriff's Office Felony Investigations Unit at (530) 538-7671.
