Human Remains Found in Wooded Area of Prince William County

Police searching rural Prince William County for a teen who disappeared more than a month ago have found human remains.

Officials have not yet determined the identity of the remains.

Local detectives and FBI agents searching a wooded area near the 14800 block of Glenkirk Road in Nokesville about 3 p.m. Tuesday found the remains, which were not in identifiable condition.

The remains were taken to Manassas, where a medical examiner will work to determine the identity and cause of death.

Police were looking for 16-year-old Palmer Marsh.

Marsh was last seen walking toward a wooded area of his family's property on Burwell Road in Nokesville, Virginia, on May 2.

He left after a disagreement with one of his parents, police say. There have been no known sightings of Marsh since his disappearance.
