Officials in northeastern Pennsylvania say it could take days to run tests on human skeletal remains found by a tree-cutting crew. The remains were found Thursday morning along Route 940 in Mount Pocono. Police say they expect to have the road closed until about 9 or 10 p.m. Thursday.

The investigation is being handled by Pocono Mountain Regional Police, a Pennsylvania State Police forensic unit and the Monroe County coroner.
