FORT BLISS, Texas (KFOX14/CBS4) — The Army is offering a reward for information that helps them identify human remains that were found on Fort Bliss.
The human remains were found in Castner Range, Hondo Pass area near the El Paso Border Patrol Station in the northeast on March 18, according to a Fort Bliss news release.
It stated that a person walking in the area found the remains and reported them to law enforcement.
The remains were discovered above ground.
There was no evidence that indicated they had been buried, officials stated.
Army officials said although there is one active missing person case at Fort Bliss, initial findings do not indicate the two cases are related.
It is believed the remains are a man between the ages of 30 to 40 years old with a height between 5 feet, 7 inches to 6 feet tall.
They believe the man went missing and died between 2017 to 2019.
The man was possibly wearing black Oakley's glasses, a blue Under Armor jacket, a white shirt, blue denim pants, a black knee brace, a grey sweatshirt, and white and gray “Wolverine” socks, officials stated.
A blue Crunch Fitness bag was found with the remains.
Officials said there is no danger to area residents or the community.
Anyone with information is asked to call the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division at 915-568-1700.
A $1,000 reward will be given to anyone who provides information leading to the person's identification.
Fort Bliss Criminal Investigation Command agents are investigating this case.
While the girl was found in Texas, a pollen analysis completed on her remains suggests she was from the southwest U.S. or the adjacent region in Mexico. It's even more likely she was from southeast Arizona.
