The remains were found atop a hill, near where a search party had previously looked.

A farmer searching for her sheep stumbled upon scattered clothing on the hill and, upon closer inspection, found human remains.

The 46-year-old woman who made the discovery recalled that the police had been searching for a missing woman and reported the finding.
