SHAWANO, Wis. (WSAU) -- Shawano County investigators have confirmed that human remains have been found. 

The Shawano County Dispatch Center received a call at 5:25 p.m. Saturday. Police combed an area in the town of Richmond late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

Shawano County Sheriff Randall Wright says a group of teenagers discovered the remains on the south side of Peach Road. The 13-year-old girl that discovered the body thought it might be a bad joke, but her mother confirmed it was real and called 9-1-1.

Investigators are treating the case as a homicide. The evidence has been sent to the Wisconsin Crime lab for further examination and possible identification.
