AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) - UPDATE March 12th, 2018:
The remains found in a wooded area on Golden Camp Road have been confirmed to be those of missing teen Latania Janell Carwell.
Richmond County investigators set up camp at an Augusta home after the owner reported what appears to be human remains.
We learned that the owner of this home was preparing to rent it when he discovered the remains.
The Richmond County Sheriff's Office received the tip around 4 p.m. Thursday.
The owner reported finding human remains.
Today, several crime scene investigators have been coming and going from this home.
Nearby drivers creep by slowly, curious about who it might be.
I spoke to the sheriffs office and a PIO says they are waiting on a forensic anthropologist from Atlanta to identify the remains, but that may take some time.
So far we are not sure if they have arrived yet either.
And we do want to note that there are a lot of people concerned about whether this might be the remains of the 16-year-old who went missing from this neighborhood last year, LaTania Janell Carwell.
At this point it is too early to tell. We will keep you updated on the story as it unfolds.
The Richmond County Sheriff's Office has just released that remains appearing to be human have been found off Golden Camp road Thursday afternoon.
The investigation into this case is in its early stages and investigators have requested the assistance of a forensic anthropologist.
No further information is available at this time.
