LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) — Officials are working to identify a body found in a Lancaster County field.

Authorities say children looking for a missing family dog on Saturday found a body in a wooded area.

The body was taken to the Lancaster County coroner’s office. Investigators are combing through files to try to figure out if the body is someone who had been reported missing.

The coroner says the remains had probably been in the woods for four to six weeks.
