Huon Valley Mystery
Tasmania Police are investigating after human remains were discovered in the Huon Valley.

The skeletal remains were found last Sunday by two Hobart bushwalkers about 10 kilometres from the Tahune Airwalk and appear to have been there for a number of years, with the identity of the deceased is not yet known.

Items found near the site, including a backpack (pictured above), indicate that the person may have been unprepared for an overnight bushwalk.

There were also Swiss Francs and currency from Hong Kong discovered in the persons bag, with receipts for currency exchange in Zurich, Switzerland, on 21 December 2010.

Officials will follow up on the possibility that the deceased was reported missing interstate - or overseas - while the Coroner will prepare a report.
