The Adams County Sheriff’s Office, Dane County Sheriff’s Office, and Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation are announcing that on Saturday, Nov. 23 human remains were found in rural Adams County.

The location is near a wooded area near 10th Avenue and Czech Avenue in the town of Preston, north of Friendship.
