RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Rutherford County Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh has confirmed that human remains were found in the Barfield area.

At this time, the Sheriff says the medical examiner will have to identify the human remains. He said the remains were found in a heavily wooded area.

Sheriff Fitzhugh says search teams are still looking for clues and other items that could lead to an ID of the remains.

Authorities had been combing the area since Tuesday in a renewed search for Devin Bond, a teen missing in Rutherford County since 2017.

Investigators say the park was one of the last places Bond’s cell phone pinged before he disappeared.

Bond was 16 when he was reported missing on March 31, 2017.

Devin’s face and name were plastered throughout Rutherford County and even on People magazine.

The remains have not been identified as Bond at this time.
