CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say human remains have been found buried on the property of a Cedar Rapids home, and officials believe they may be those of a missing eastern Iowa man.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that its deputies and other law enforcement agencies searched the property Thursday and found the buried remains. The body has been taken to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

Officials say that while no positive identification has yet been made, “it appears the body may have connection to the disappearance of Christopher Bagley, who went missing on Dec. 14.”

No other details of what led police to the property or how the victim may have died were released.
