HIBBING– Possible human remains were found in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

Authorities reported the discovery last Friday, and they’re believed to belong to 29-year-old Jordan Grider of Moriarty, New Mexico, who was camping there for the winter.

St. Louis County Deputies found his vehicle at the Sioux Hustler trailhead last October, but authorities were unsuccessful in searching for his campground at that time.

U.S. Forest Service Officers located a campsite on April 5 roughly a mile and a half away from where the vehicle was found, and a large amount of blood was found inside the tent.

A search was called off due to deep snow, and resumed last Thursday when the remains were found scattered nearby the campsite. Officials say foul play is not suspected.
