JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Jeffersonville police are looking into the case of a missing man in connection with the skeletal remains found Friday.

Stephen Reedy, 26, went missing over a year and a half ago on September 22, 2011. He lived in the Beech Grove apartments, a few hundred feet away from the woods where the gruesome discovery was made. The remains were found behind Faith Lutheran Church on Allison Lane by a church groundskeeper. 

A private investigator hired to find Reedy, fears the remains may be of Reedy. Investigator Charles Thompson said, "He was a troubled young man back then and his family was concerned that he had done something to hurt himself. We did and extensive search with the Jeffersonville K-9 unit." At the time they did not find anything. "Obviously when I heard about the remains being found, I asked myself, could that be Stephen Reedy?"  

The Jeffersonville Police Department, the coroner and an anthropologist are working on the case.
