(Boston Twp.) - Remains found in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park have been identified as missing Akron woman Taylor Robinson.
The 19-year-old hasn't been seen since being dropped off for work May 3.
The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office confirms the remains are those of Robinson. Additional examination of the remains, including anthropologic examination, will need to take place to determine the cause and manner of death.
Gary Guenther of the Summit County Medical Examiner's office tells WTAM 1100 that pathologists began comparing Robinson's dental records to the jawbone found Monday in a wooded area of the park.
Guenther says without a full skeleton, determining the cause of death may be difficult.

Members of the FBI’s Evidence Response Team also continue to search the densely wooded area off Riverview Road in Boston Township. Some clothing was also discovered, although investigators can not tell whether they are mens' or womens' items.
The remains were found by hikers who went off the marked trail.
