COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Several hunters found human remains in a heavily wooded area in Colleton County Tuesday. Coroner Richard Harvey says they belong to a missing Summerville woman, 36-year-old Andrea Stone.

The coroner says this case is being treated as a homicide, but the remains are still at MUSC as forensic experts determine how she died. Harvey says there are signs of trauma. The coroner says they identified Stone through dental records and clues on the scene that it might be her.

"We did recover her vehicle, a 2004 Mercury Mountaineer black in color. We found it back on May 10 in Cottageville," Chief Deputy Ted Stanfield said.

According to the Colleton County Sheriff's Office, several hunters found the remains disposed near a hunt club on Ritter Road near Catholic Hill in Colleton County. The body had apparently been at the location for several months.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office has been trying to locate Stone. She was wanted on two charges covering 63 incidents of forgery and two charges of breach of trust in connection with over $134,000 missing from her previous employer.

"We're following some leads right now and we are asking that if anyone knows anything about the incident, anything that could help the investigators along. We are working with Dorchester County Sheriff's Office and Colleton County Sheriff's Office together," Chief Deputy Stanfield said.

Her last known location was her home around noon on May 10. Since that time she had not been seen nor has she contacted any friends or family. Please call Crimestoppers at 1-888-crime-sc or the sheriff's office at (843) 549-2211.
