Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood confirms the body found in a wooded area yesterday are the remains of 32-year-old Logan Dunne of Peoria.

Dunne disappeared on June 2 after leaving Carle Methodist Hospital on foot.

The Peoria County Sheriff's Office says human remains were found Monday in a wooded portion of North Kickapoo Creek Road.

According to a news release, officers responded to the 300 block of North Kickapoo shortly after 11 a.m. Monday.

A man hunting deer in the area found the human remains and called authorities.

The sheriff's office said nothing found at the site suggests foul play, but officers are still investigating and that is subject to change.
