Man's skeletal remains found in Harrison County

An investigation is under way following the weekend discovery of skeletal remains in Harrison County.

Hunters found an abandoned pickup truck around noon Sunday just east of Mississippi 605 and reported it to the Harrison County Sheriff's Department.

County Coroner Gary Hargrove said a deputy found human remains nearby.

Authorities plan to check dental and medical records to determine if the remains are that of Justin Lacey Tubbs, a 48-year-old Saucier man who has been missing since April.

Tubbs drove a 1992 Chevrolet pickup, which matched the description of the vehicle that was found near the remains.
