CBI trying to identify human remains found in Saguache County

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation is trying to identify human remains found near Saguache Peak.

SAGUACHE COUNTY, Colo. — The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is trying to identify human remains that were found in Saguache County Wednesday.

Authorities were searching for Edna Quintana, a 55-year-old woman who has been missing since May, when they discovered skeletal remains in the foothill west of Saguache Peak off County Road 46AA.

They believe the remains belong to a man who was approximately 5-foot-9 with a pants size of 36Wx30L. CBI said the remains are not connected to Quintana's disappearance, and the search for her continues.

CBI released photos of a cross and shoe that were found with the remains:
