COOSA, GA (AP) - Authorities in northwest Georgia are awaiting autopsy results on skeletal remains that were found during a search for a missing man over the weekend.

Parris says authorities believe the remains that were found on Saturday are those of a 21-year-old Coosa man who was reported missing in early November.

Sheriff Tim Burkhalter says the man erased the contents of his computer hard drive and cellphone before he disappeared.
