A search for human remains discovered in a rural area southeast of Edmonton is over, according to RCMP.

The search started Wednesday after a resident alerted police to human remains that were discovered at Range Road 233 and Township Road 510 near Beaumont.

Sgt. Jack Poitras said RCMP were on scene from Wednesday to Friday.

“Police have conducted a search of a fairly wide area there and found some more bones there,” he said. Poitras declined to say how many bones have been recovered.

On Friday, crime tape was still visible around a log cabin on Range Road 233 but that was taken down Saturday morning.

Although the search is over, there were still some workers on scene Saturday.

“Sometimes we send reconstructionists, workers with GPS location devices that plot the area,” Poitras said.

He said RCMP are working to identify the remains. A report from the medical examiner is expected next week.

RCMP will then use missing person reports and dental records to determine the identity, Poitras said.

“The more details on age, sex and all that then it’s easier to compare to missing persons files or previous people that we’re looking. But until then it’s hard to have an idea who we’re looking for.”

He could not comment on whether the bones showed signs of damage.

Poitras said there is no indication of when the remains may have been left there, but he said police do not believe the incident is recent, adding there is no danger to the public.

“There [isn’t] a high risk to people. It appears that would have been in the past more so than recent,” he said.

The RCMP’s Forensic Identification Section and its Major Crimes Unit has been called in to help with the investigation.
