WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say the remains of a man who was reported missing more than a month ago have been found in central Kentucky.

Police said in a news release Monday that the remains were found near Winchester on Friday. They were identified as those of 38-year-old Robert Jones.

Jones and his girlfriend, 35-year-old Crystal Warner, both of Florence, went missing July 3. Police said the search for Warner continues.

Last month, 52-year-old Craig Pennington of Springfield was indicted on two counts of murder and other charges, including kidnapping, tampering with evidence, theft, terroristic threatening, abuse of a corpse and menacing.

Jones was identified through dental records. Police said additional testing will be used to try to determine an exact cause of death.
