911 caller asks deputies to check Harnett Co. house; they find human bones in the yard

DUNN, N.C. (WTVD) -- Deputies found what appears to be human bones in the yard of a Harnett County home.

The Harnett County Sheriff's Office 911 Center received a call around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. The caller said they were concerned because they had not seen the person who lived at a home on Monroe Lane in Dunn.

When deputies went to check on the person, they found what they believed to be human remains in the yard.

Deputies combed the yard for hours, putting up yellow tape and carrying brown bags of evidence to their parol cars.

Neighbors said a man who was in his 60s lived at the house alone. They said they hadn't seen him in months but that he usually kept to himself anyway.

The identity of the man hasn't been released.

The sheriff's office said it does not suspect foul play.

Neighbors told ABC11 that they don't feel scared or nervous in the generally quiet area.
