Alexis Creek RCMP are investigating whether the discovery of what are believed to be human remains is linked to a missing person case in the area.
A resident near the Anaham Meadow, about five kilometres northeast of Alexis Creek, discovered the remains Thursday.
A search of the area will be launched on Saturday, including police dog services, air services and an RCMP forensic team.
Police say they will be investigating whether the remains are those of Dickson Alphonse, who has been missing since May.
Alphonse was last seen leaving the Anaham reserve on an all-terrain-vehicle on May 4 at about 10 p.m. His ATV vehicle was later found near the Anaham Meadow.
"Police are in possession of dental records and a comparison, if possible, will be made in the near future," said Sgt. Pat McTiernan in a statement Friday.
