Fires at Hervey Range have reduced the grass load in the area, exposing human remains just off the main road in the area. 

Police are hoping that dental records could give them a faster identification on the human remains found. 

Mystery surrounds who they belong to, but there's reports that some families linked early on, have been told it isn't their missing loved one. 

Jayden Penno-Tompsett's family have been told it isn't him. 

The family of Condon Mother Julie Hutchinson have been told of the discovery after her disappearance in 2015.

If this step in the investigation doesn't work, then authorities will need to go to the longer process of DNA, which could take several weeks.
