PERDIX, Pa. (WHTM) - State Police say human remains were found in the woods near the 1300 block of State Road in Perdix, Perry County around 8  p.m. Wednesday evening.

Officials believe the remains had been there for some time and were found about 25 yards off the roadway.

"The body has probably been there...a few weeks. At this point, due to the hot weather, the body is slightly decomposed," Trooper Rob Hicks from the Pa. State Police said.

Investigators remained on the scene for several hours.

No further details were released late Wednesday evening.

The Perry County Coroner set to perform an autopsy.
