GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - Deputies are investigating after human remains were found in Georgetown County.

The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office said the remains were discovered in a wooded area off Kent Road, which is located in a rural part of the county off Highway 521.

Authorities added the remains appear to have been there “for an extended period of time,” according to deputies on the scene.

Jason Lesley, the spokesperson for the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, said the remains were removed by the coroner, and at this point it’s hard to tell if foul play was suspected and can’t tell the gender of the person.

The sheriff’s office added said there is no immediate threat to the community.
