The remains of a 39-year-old Idaho man who went missing on a hunting trip back in 1968 have been found. The Lemhi County Sheriff's Office says Raymond Jones of Salmon went hunting for mountain goat in the Hayden Creek area near Leadore. After he failed to return home, a search effort was launched, but it was hampered by foul weather and he was never located. Fast forward some 53 years later, authorities say a bow hunter was hunting in the same area where Jones went missing when he found the remains and contacted the sheriff's office.
