BROWN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - Search crews on Saturday found skeletal remains at the home of a Hamersville man who went missing in early April.

The remains have been turned over to the Brown County Coroner’s Office for testing and identification, according to Sheriff Gordon Ellis.

Anthony Schneider, 47, was last seen on April 5. He last used his phone April 6, per Ellis.

On April 12, deputies went to Schneider’s Hamersville home and took a report of his disappearance from his brother. The next day, detectives searched the area around the home but did not find him.

The sheriff’s office publicized his disappearance on April 19.
