Police in Jackson County believe that human remains found last week could be that of a man missing since October of 2016.
72-year-old James Elliot suffered from Alzheimer’s when he left his home in Decatur in his car.
Elliot’s car was found in November of 2016 near Crow Mountain.
A two-day search was unsuccessful.
Hunters found the remains last Friday night.
Confirmation on the body’s identity should come this week.
