SALYERSVILLE — The discovery of human in remains in Magoffin County have renewed interest in the case of a man who went missing in February.

Kentucky State Police received a report of the discovery of remains in the Johnson Fork area, near the home of Freddie Brown, 29, who was last seen Feb. 27.

Brown’s sister, Tiffany Lambert, told WYMT in March that Brown was last seen by his mother that evening, running from his home to meet with friends. When asked where he was going, he reportedly told his mother, “Go in the house, Mom. I’ll tell you in a minute.” He was never seen again.

On Friday, Det. Jason Dials reported to the scene of the discovery and determined that the remains were human. The next day, Dials returned to the scene with the Magoffin County Rescue Squad, Magoffin County Sheriff’s Office and a canine search-and-recovery team to scour the area and locate additional remains.

The remains have been sent to the state medical examiner’s office, in Frankfort, for positive identification.
