Alaska State Troopers say human remains have been found adjacent to West Hollywood Road near Big Lake.

The remains have been taken to the State Medical Examiner Office, said troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters. They appear to be a man but officials are waiting for a positive ID.

Troopers cannot provide further context about the discovery until they hear back from the medical examiner, Peters said.

Investigators based in Palmer are currently investigating, troopers said.
