MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Officials are investigating whether remains found behind two western Kentucky homes belong to a missing man.
Hopkins County Sheriff Frank Latham told The Messenger that human remains were found Monday by a homeowner walking near a creek on his property after heavy rains.
While a positive identification hasn't yet been made, Latham says officials are investigating whether the remains belong to 42-year-old Rodney "Bo" Hale of Nebo, who was last seen in the area between Madisonville and Anton more than two years ago doing construction work.
Latham says the area was heavily searched when Hale was reported missing.
