Police say human remains found at several locations in northern Ohio over the weekend are believed to be those of a woman who was last seen in July.

A release from the Mansfield Police Department says the Richland County coroner hadn't yet confirmed the identity. But police say they believe the remains found at sites in the northern part of the county could be those of 62-year-old Patsy Hudson.

Police say the Mansfield woman was last seen in July and reported missing by her family in December.

Authorities say investigators in the case developed several leads in the last few days that led to the recovery of the remains.

Police are awaiting the coroner's report and haven't responded to requests Monday for more information.
