TOWN OF PELICAN, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in northern Wisconsin hope an autopsy will provide answers, after skeletal remains were found Monday in a wooded area near Rhinelander.

Oneida County Chief Deputy Dan Hess said a person walking in the woods saw the remains and called 911 around noon Monday.

The remains were in the town of Pelican near Lake Julia.

Hess said the early word that was the victim was a man, he did not appear to die recently.

He said his officers have no current reports of missing persons in the area -- and anyone with information about a possible missing man is asked to call the Oneida County sheriff's office.
