CARBONDALE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities will test remains found on property in northeast Kansas to determine whether they are human.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/GWc276 ) the bones and fragments have been sent to a morgue in Kansas City, Kan., for further examination.

Investigators found the additional remains on property near Carbondale after a woman hunting for mushrooms discovered a human skull on Saturday. Carbondale is about 15 miles south of Topeka.

The Osage County sheriff's office says DNA testing could take several months.
