Authorities are searching a wooded area west of Topeka where skeletal remains were found.

Shawnee County sheriff's Lt. Harry Louderback says deputies responded Monday after receiving a report that the remains had been found near a Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism office. The remains were removed with the assistance of the Shawnee County Coroner's Office.

Louderback said that because of heavy vegetation, the search was postponed until daybreak on Tuesday. No other details were announced about the nature of the remains.
