BIG SPRING - The remains found in Scurry County last month still haven't been identified. The finding has sparked rumors of the skeleton possibly belonging to missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn. KTXS in Abilene spoke to Curtis Lloyd about his discovery.

"I was just concerned, I wanted to get a hold of authorities as quick as possible. Get em out there, and uh, that way they could gather up what's there," Lloyd said.

He told KTXS he was in the area searching for fossils.

"I was just walking the lake bed, along the edge of the lake bed and noticed something that looked a little unusual," Lloyd said. "As I walked over to it, I recognized it to be human remains."

Lloyd said he isn't going to assume who the remains belong to.

"Obviously I'm hoping we can solve some kind of case. From my understanding, there are two or three individuals who are missing from fairly close," he said. "I wouldn't want to speculate, families emotions are involved, so the last thing I want to do is assume it's anyone."

The FBI told NewsWest 9 it could be months before we know the identity.
