Investigators aren't sure whether the remains are human.

KILLEEN, Texas -- Witnesses reported finding unidentified remains in a field in Killeen, Texas, on Saturday evening, according to police.

At 1:33 pm, officers were called for an area check after people say they spotted remains while in the area.

KWTX-TV said the discovery was found within walking distance of the site where investigators found soldier Gregory Wedel-Morales' remains on June 19.

This information comes as search crews continue to look for missing Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen.

Guillen was last seen back in April, however, officials have not yet said if any of these cases were connected.

Detectives with the Homicide Unit have removed the remains and sent them to the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas for further review.
