The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department said the bone was found Tuesday in a wooded area near mile-marker 43 of Highway 227.
Due to the advanced state of decomposition, deputies are not able to determine who the remains belonged to.
Search and rescue crews are searching the area for more remains and additional evidence.
NBC5 News has a reporter in the area and will have more information as it becomes available.
