MANSFIELD, OH (WOIO) - Mansfield police along with the U.S. Marshals Task Force believe the remains of a missing Mansfield woman have been found.
Patsy Hudson was reported missing by her family on Dec. 22, 2015. Over the last few days, several leads were developed which led investigators to multiple crimes scenes in northern Richland County.
With the assistance of the Richland County Sheriff's Office and other local and state agencies, human remains believed to be that of Hudson, were recovered at the multiple sites.
A positive identification of the remains is still pending by the Richland County Coroner's Office.
Last week, authorities in Ohio and Tennessee arrested Walter Renz and Linda Buckner-Blehar in Lewis County, Tennessee. Both suspects were wanted for questioning related to the 62-year-old's disappearance.
Sources say the couple, former neighbors of Hudson, had allegedly been using Hudson's credit cards.
Hudson, of Spring Street in Mansfield, was last seen July 4. She was not reported missing until December.
Anyone with additional information about the case is encouraged to contact Major Crimes Lieutenant Rob Skropits at at 419-755-9724.
