Members of the Maine State Police and state medical examiner’s office will return to Greenfield on Wednesday after the discovery of human remains of an adult male on Monday, according to the spokesman for the state police.

The remains were located outside a home at 407 Crocker Turn Road, Stephen McCausland said late Tuesday.

“There is no clear indication of foul play,” he said.

The remains were taken to the medical examiner’s office in Augusta. DNA evidence most likely will be needed to identify the man.

“An adult male lived at the residence, and he is unaccounted for,” McCausland said. “Relatives said they had had little contact with him in the last few months.”

McCausland did not know if a missing persons report was ever filed concerning the homeowner.

Greenfield is a township in Penobscot County on the border with Hancock County. It’s about 15 miles northeast of Old Town.
