A human skeleton was found near Lefkara in the Larnaca district on Sunday morning, reports said.
The remains were found by hunters at around 8am between Lythrodontas and Lefkara, scattered over a small area.
Both the police and the state pathologist went to the area and were conducting investigations at the scene. First reports suggested it could be the remains of a man who was reported missing in the area in mid-2015. The reports said police did not suspect foul play.
