Human remains found where police search for missing Royalton teen


Vermont State Police have located what they believe are human remains at 714 Beaver Meadow Rd. in the town of Norwich, Vermont.

The discovery happened as police resumed their search for 19 year-old Austin Colson who has been missing since January 11.

That’s when Colson was last seen at his home in Royalton, Vermont.

There is no positive identification at this time.

The remains were transported to the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington for identification and an autopsy to determine cause of death.

Colson had made plans to collect scrap metal on January 11. A week later an abandoned trailer was found on Downer Road in Sharon.

If you know of any information you are asked to call State Police at 802-234-9933.
