CALHOUN, GA (WRCB) -- Detectives from the Calhoun Police Department are currently investigating a new lead in a missing person's case involving a local man who was reporting missing by family members back in 2010.

Calhoun Police, working in conjunction with the Cobb County Police Department, discovered evidence linking human remains found near I-75 in Kennesaw Ga. to a Calhoun man who went missing on August 11th 2010.  

The remains were discovered on Wednesday morning May 23, 2012 by a man picking up cans along the interstate in Cobb County.

"Due to the evidence obtained in this case we strongly believe the remains are that of our missing person, however we are not releasing the name of the victim until DNA testing has been completed and family members have been notified." said Det. Lt. Tony Pyle.
