WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) _ Investigators will continue processing a site in southern Kansas where possible human skeletal remains were found.

The Cowley County Sheriff's office says tree trimmers found the remains Monday along a private access road northwest of Winfield.

The sheriff says in a news release that no evidence of foul play was found but the case will be considered one of ``unknown circumstances'' while the investigation proceeds.

A forensic anthropologist and DNA testing by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation will determine the identity of the remains.
