Human remains discovered in rural Conway County near ATV

MORRILTON, Ark. (AP) - The Conway County Sheriff's Office says human remains discovered in a rural part of the county are being shipped to the Arkansas Medical Examiner's office for identification.

The sheriff's office says the body was discovered in some woods around 4:30 p.m. on Friday. Deputies say a hunter called authorities after finding an ATV in the woods near Bell Mountain Road and Marge Lane.

Deputies found a blue Yamaha four wheeler. The ATV matched the description of one owned by a missing man named Leonard Nix, who last was seen in August.

Deputies say the human remains were found not far from the ATV.
