CORNWALL — City police say human remains have been found in the woods north of Tollgate Road Saturday.

Someone made the grisly discovery just before noon in the area between Brookdale Avenue and Pitt Street.

Investigators are still trying to determine the identity of the body.

Police spokesman Stephanie MacRae told Cornwall Newswatch the force does have outstanding historical missing persons cases. The most recently notable one is 41-year-old Crystal Keeler who has been missing since late July and was the subject of a well-being check.

The criminal investigations unit, along with the forensics unit and the regional coroner are investigating.

Police say there’s no threat to public safety.
