MILAM COUNTY (June 9, 2014) Sheriff's deputies and volunteers from a search group in Bryan found human remains Saturday in northern Milam County in the search for a man who’s been missing for more than a month.

Milam County Chief Deputy Chris White said the searchers located the remains in an area north of Milam County Road 104.

They were looking for Travis Blake Curry, 28, a Travis County man who was reported missing about five weeks ago.

While deputies could not positively identify the remains, Curry's family was notified of the discovery.

The remains were sent first to Marek, Burns and Laywell Funeral Home in Cameron and then on to the Travis County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy, which authorities hope will confirm the identity, White said.

White did not reveal if any signs of foul play were discovered where the remains were found.

Milam County authorities asked for the public's help on April 28 locating Curry, who was wanted in connection with a reported burglary.

Deputies searched several fields and buildings in the area for Curry without success, Milam County Sheriff David Greene said in a press release at the time.

The sheriff's office received several calls from acquaintances at the time who said they hadn't seen or heard from Curry since the time of the burglary.

The burglary was reported at a home in the 1400 block of County Road 112.

A man suspected of entering the home was later seen running through a field south of the property, Greene said.

There were indications, Greene said, that the man "left most of his clothing" behind.
