UPDATE 10/1/14 @ 7:30 p.m.
KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Kanawha County Sheriff's deputies are asking for help identifying human remains that were discovered in August.

The human remains were discovered along the bank of a creek below Reamer Road, 3 miles south of Clendenin.

After the remains were recovered, they were sent to experts to be examined. The doctors have determined the body is a man who was about 50 years old.

He had suffered a traumatic brain injury in recent years. The injury may have been the result of a car or ATV crash.

He was also missing several teeth that they believe were knocked out or removed at the same time the brain injury occurred. He also had broken ribs.

The injury resulted in a hemorrhage, which led to brain surgery at the time of that accident.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office asks if you know the identity of the man or have any other information about these remains, to call 1-304-357-0169.
