Human remains found in river near South Avis

SOUTH AVIS — State police at Lamar and Clinton County Coroner Zach Hanna are investigating the discovery of human remains found Thursday along the Susquehanna River in Pine Creek Township, Clinton County.

Hanna said the remains were discovered along the riverbank by fishermen.

Although rumors are circulating that the remains could be those of Alex Mardis, a 31-year-old local man who disappeared Oct. 30, 2019 and was last seen fishing in the Susquehanna River in Wayne Township, Hanna said he could not confirm that.

“We are working to identify the remains,” Hanna said Sunday.

State police said the investigation is ongoing and no details are being released at this time.
