ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- Bones found on a Southern Oregon ranch are being tested to determine whether they are those of a Roseburg man missing since 2009.

The Roseburg News-Review (http://bit.ly/HQsd0L) reports that a rancher found clothing and ID Monday belonging to Clayton Pankey, last seen at a gasoline station in Sutherlin.

Searchers found skeletal remains nearby. They were sent to the state police forensic lab in Portland.

After he disappeared, Pankey's van was found abandoned at a spot that's about 10 miles from the ranch where the clothing, ID and remains were found.
