Dental work points to missing woman as bones examined

MILAN, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities in West Tennessee say human bones found in a dry creek bed near Atwood might be those of a woman who was reported missing last year.

Milan Police Chief Ken Nolan says an anonymous caller reported Janessa Lindsey missing in August.

While the remains haven't been positively identified, Nolan says Lindsey had unusual dental fillings and her X-rays matched teeth found in the creek.

TBI special agent John Mehr says it might take longer to determine how the person died, but said the remains had been in the creek for less than six months.

Police say Lindsey was living with friends in a mobile home park near Atwood when she disappeared.
