Human remains found at camp linked to missing man

Human remains found at campsite believed used by Chicago hiker who's been missing since 2010 By The Associated Press

MINTURN, Colo. (AP) ' Authorities have discovered human remains near a campsite believed to have been used by a hiker from Chicago who has been missing since October 2010.

James Nelson was reported missing when he failed to return from a five day, 25-mile hike in the Holy Cross Wilderness area near Minturn.

The Eagle County Sheriff's office says a hiker on Friday located the campsite near Holy Cross City, and the remains were discovered during a search of the area on Saturday.



The remains were turned over to the coroner for identification, and there was no immediate word on a cause of death.

The Sheriff's office says a notebook located at the campsite indicated that Nelson may have been suffering from altitude sickness. The office says it appears that some of the 31-year-old man's gear is missing, including a camera and GPS unit.
