The FBI is asking for help in identifying a man whose skeletal remains were found by a hunter in a wooded area northwest of Sauget in December of 2012.
The federal agency has created a clay sculpture to help assist with identification.
A release from the Sauget Police Department says that five Russian coins in a pair of blue sweatpants were found along with the bones.
The remains were sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification. Testing revealed that the skeleton belongs to a 30 to 50 year old white male, between 5-feet 6 and 6-feet-1 inches tall. If you have any information about this case you are urged to call the Sauget Police department at 618-337-526.
Anyone missing a family member is urged to use the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. Search for loved ones here: www.namus.gov
