COOSA, Ga. (AP) -

Authorities in northwest Georgia are awaiting autopsy results on skeletal remains that were found during a search for a missing man over the weekend.

Floyd County police Cpl. Mary Catherine Parris told the Rome News-Tribune that authorities are unsure of how the man died or if foul play may have been a factor.

Parris said authorities believe the remains that were found on Saturday are those of a 21-year-old Coosa man who was reported missing in early November.

Sheriff Tim Burkhalter said the man erased the contents of his computer hard drive and cellphone before he disappeared.
