Human remains discovered near Mount Pleasant

Posted:
MT. PLEASANT (KWWL) -

Investigators are looking into whether human remains discovered are those of one of two missing women.

Investigators say a human skull and other remains were discovered Saturday evening by children riding their bikes about 10 miles west of Mount Pleasant.

The remains have gone to the medical examiner. He says he's hoping to learn whether the remains are those of Jackie Leigh Douthart, 24, who disappeared last May; or Elizabeth Syperda, who vanished in 2000.
