FORT MYERS, Fla.- Lee County Sheriff's deputies are investigating human remains found on Shell Point Blvd. just after 10:00 p.m. Thursday, near the entrance to the Shell Point Retirement Community.

LCSO's crime unit is gathering evidence in the wooded area, and though the identity of the person is unknown, deputies want the public to know they are not in danger.

Deputies say someone found skeletal remains while on a nature walk last night. The scene was secured at the time, but investigators waited for daylight to begin working on it.

The crime scene unit will be at the location through the night.

The sheriff's office is combing through their missing persons file at this time.
