Sunday afternoon, while searching for a missing Bedford man, a team from the University of Indianapolis, Human Identification Center, directed by Dr. Krista Latham, recovered human remains that had been located in a wooded area on Friday.

The remains were discovered by a person walking their dog in woods located in the area of 22nd and F streets.

A search had been conducted to look for Brian S. Blomquist who had been reported missing to the Bedford Police Department on August 13th.

Blomquist was last seen on August 6, on 24th Street near G Street.

The remains will be examined, and positive identification cannot be determined until DNA results return in 6 to 8 weeks.

A search of this area was conducted on September 15th, by members of Bedford Police Department, K-9 handlers from the Grant County Kentucky Sheriff’s Office and members of the Kentucky Search Dog Association.

Bedford Police officers would like to thank Tabernacle of Praise Service (TOPES) for providing foods and drinks, members of the Lawrence County Prosecutors Office and Lawrence County Coroner Office for their assistance.
