The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department is searching for the identity of human remains found Monday outside the Mt. Vernon city limits.

Authorities say the remains were found by people looking for deer antlers in an area off the intersection of Veterans Memorial Drive and Davidson Avenue west of the I-57-Veterans Memorial Drive interchange.

Sheriff Jeff Bullard says the person had been dead for quite some time.

He says to help identify the remains, authorities are reviewing missing person reports.
