Remains found near Eastern Oregon recreation area

MILTON-FREEWATER — Loggers have found human remains scattered near a Blue Mountains recreation area where an Eastern Oregon teenager went missing nine years ago.

The East Oregonian reports that state medical examiners are investigating.

Loggers found the skeletal remains Monday off a road near Harris Park, which is owned by Umatilla County. It's about 14 miles southeast of Milton-Freewater.

A state crime lab scientist determined the remains were those of a male. Sheriff Terry Rowan says there was no immediate indication how long the remains had been there.

The paper reports that a Jeep Cherokee belonging to 19-year-old Byron Fusselman of Milton-Freewater was found in the park's lot in November 2005, and the area was searched. Authorities said at the time he wasn't dressed for the freezing temperatures.
