Publish date:

A medical examiner is in the process of identifying possible human remains found in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of northeast Minnesota. 

According to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, the remains were found shortly after resuming the search for a New Mexico man, 29-year-old Jordan Grider, whose campsite was discovered April 5 with a large amount of blood inside a tent. 

The snow was too deep at the time to search the area, so it was called off until the snow melted. 

Around 10 a.m. Thursday, search crews found possible human remains near Grider's campsite. The remains were "scattered across a large area in the vicinity," the sheriff's release says. 

Authorities have alerted Grider's family that the remains might be that of Grider, although the sheriff's office says positive identification will "take some time." 

Foul play is not suspected. 

The initial search for Grider began Oct. 22, 2018, when deputies received a call to check on a suspicious vehicle parked at the Sioux Hustler Trail.

They determined that Grider had notified family that he planned to spend the winter camped in the forest, but attempts to find his campsite were unsuccessful until April 5.
