Human remains found in Teller County

Posted: Updated:
TELLER COUNTY -

The Teller County Sheriff's Office said deputies are investigating after human remains were found about a mile from the Catamount Trailhead.

Deputies said they are treating the case as a suspicious death.

The Sheriff's Office said they received a report that a hiker found a human skull about a mile from the trailhead around 5 p.m. Due to darkness, the sheriff's office and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation will come back Saturday morning to process the scene. 

A deputy will keep watch at the scene overnight.

The Teller County Sheriff's Office said there was only one person reported missing in that area recently, 39-year-old Micah Lambert.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has Lambert's dental records and they will be on scene Saturday to find if the remains are hers.

The trail will be closed to hikers as the investigation continues.

We'll continue to follow this story both on air and on the News 5 app over the weekend.
