LINCOLN, Ala. (WBRC) - Human remains found in a creek in Lincoln have been identified as a 77-year-old man.

Talladega County Deputy Coroner said the remains are those of Roy Dorsey Jr. of Lincoln. There were no obvious signs of foul play.

Lincoln Police were notified about possible human remains in a creek near Blue Eye Springs Road on January 16.

The Investigations Unit responded to the scene and confirmed there were human remains that had been at the location for an extended period of time.

Dorsey was a veteran and police say it appears he does not have any family. Authorities are working with the VA to arrange burial for him at the Alabama National Cemetery in Montevallo.
