PENINSULA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northeast Ohio say the remains found off a trail in a national park belong to a reported missing teen.

The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office on Wednesday said the remains are those of 19-year-old Taylor Robinson who went missing from Akron in May.

Chief investigator Gary Guenther with the medical examiner’s office says the remains will be further analyzed to determine Robinson’s cause and manner of death.

Authorities at Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron have said a jawbone and other small bones were found Tuesday.

A park service spokeswoman said hikers first spotted the jawbone, and searchers then found additional human remains, including a partial skull.

Chief Ranger Chris Ryan said it’s unclear how long the remains had been there.
