The Bangor Police Department is investigating human remains that were found off Stillwater Avenue in Bangor.

Bangor Police received a call from the Maine Warden Service at around 10 a.m. Sunday, according to Sgt. Wade Betters. Wardens said they had found human remains in a wooded area behind 900 Stillwater Avenue. The business at that address is the Walmart Supercenter.

Sunday's coordinated search was an effort to locate 47-year-old Thomas Lynch who’d been missing since September of 2018, according to police.

The State Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy to positively identify the body.
