Officials in Crawford County are working on identifying the skeletal remains of a man found late Wednesday afternoon along French Creek in Meadville’s Fifth Ward.

Reports indicate the discovery of the remains was reported by two men who were investigating a campsite they found constructed near a trail leading to a fishing area near Lincoln Avenue.

The Crawford County Coroner’s office says the remains could have been in the area for up to six months, and that they are the remains of a man who was probably “35 years of age or younger.”

Meadville City Police officials are investigating, and are reportedly looking into the possibility that the man may have been living at the campsite.
