Remains believed to be those of a missing Fayetteville man were found in Smith County Wednesday.
Smith county coroner Samuel Houston Smith told reporters the remains may belong to Rasheem Ryelle Carter, 25. They were found in a wooded area, he said.
Carter is listed was last seen outside of a Super 8 Hotel early last month in Laurel. He had been doing contract work in Taylorsville a half hour away.
The remains have been sent to the state crime lab for an autopsy, authorities said.
