Authorities say they're investigating the discovery of human remains in a state park in the Finger Lakes region.
State police say the remains were found Wednesday in a wooded area in Taughannock Falls State Park in the Tompkins County town of Ulysses, 43 miles southwest of Syracuse.
State police and state park police are working with Binghamton University's Anthropology Department in an effort to identify the remains.
The park located in rugged terrain on Cayuga Lake's southwestern shore, 10 miles north of Ithaca, features the 215-foot Taughannock Falls.
