Police: human remains in Ohio believed to be missing woman

MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Police say human remains found at several sites over the weekend in northern Ohio are believed to be those of a woman last seen in July.

A release from the Mansfield Police Department says the Richland County coroner hadn’t yet confirmed the identity. But police say they believe the remains found at sites in the northern part of the county could be those of 62-year-old Patsy Hudson.

Police say the Mansfield woman was last seen in July and reported missing by her family in December.

Authorities say investigators in the case developed several leads in the last few days that led to the recovery of the remains.

Police are awaiting the coroner’s report and expect to release more information on the case soon.
