Saturday, the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department received a call from citizen in the Maysville area who had come across what appeared to be human remains.
Officers from the sheriff’s department along with crime scene technicians from the Indiana State Police responded to the area along Hawkins Creek, east of CR 300 W.
Daviess County Sheriff Gary Allison said the investigation is still in the early stages and forensic testing will need to be completed to identify those remains. As of now, there’s no time frame for those tests to be completed.
Dan Grannan, 73, has been missing for more than a year from not far from where the remains were located in August of 2019. Until forensic results come back, there’s no way to know for sure if the remains are from the missing Maysville man.
Grannan had some past episodes of dementia, but his daughter, Lori Grannan Jones said he had been fine the night he disappeared, leaving his keys and other personal items at his home, located in Maysville.
The searching for Grannan, who had owned the Maysville Mobile Manor trailer court, had served on the Board of Zoning Appeals, worked as driver for many area trucking companies and as a security guard for area coal mines and at one time owned a gravel hauling business, Jones said in an interview about the one year anniversary of her father’s disappearance, never not stopped.
