COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Police are trying to identify the remains found in a Kennesaw subdivision. They made the disturbing find Tuesday afternoon.

Police said the remains were found in the 500 block of Farmbrook Trail in northern Cobb County. Detectives are working to get search warrants and begin the process of removing the remains for further investigation.

Wednesday morning the Cobb County Medical Examiner's office confirmed that the remains belong to a human.

They were found in the same location where 26-year-old veteran Chase Massner was last seen 3 years ago. It's also where Massner's friend used to live and the center of an exhaustive search back when the vet first disappeared in 2014.
