Police in western Pennsylvania are trying to identify the skeletal remains of a woman found in a wooded area who might have ties to North Carolina.

A resident found the remains on Wednesday near an industrial park in Somerset County, south of Pittsburgh.

Police believe the woman died in the summer. They say it appears she was a white woman between 30 and 40 years old. She was wearing
a black jacket, white shirt and black jeans.

Police say evidence found at the scene indicates she was traveling and had been in Raleigh, N.C. Pennsylvania State Police have also contacted North Carolina authorities to see if the remains can be matched to any missing people.
