Authorities are investigating to see if human remains found along the Maquoketa River during the Independence Day holiday weekend, are those of a man who has been missing for about 8 months.

People who were floating on the river on July 3rd, discovered the body just south of Canton, in Jones County, and called local authorities.

Members of the Jones County Sheriff's Office responded, and confirmed the remains are those of a human. The person's identity has not been confirmed, although there was speculation that they may belong to Justin Chambers, who was reported missing along the same river, north of Canton, last November.

A search for Chambers was called off because of bad weather, and because no one knew where Chambers had last been seen.
