TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a hunter found a human skull in a remote area in Alabama.

News outlets report that the hunter found the skull in a remote area of Tuscaloosa County on Sunday, called authorities and took investigators to the area.

Authorities searched for additional remains Sunday and continued looking Monday morning.
