SAN ANTONIO -- On Tuesday morning, searchers will return with cadaver dogs to the scene where a number of human bones have been found.

On Friday, the remains were discovered near Babcock and Huebner roads by a group of Scouts.

One of them, Steven, told News 4 WOAI, “We were just walking around and we stumbled across the guy's pants and there was a leg bone and then we went farther and there was a skull.”

News 4 WOAI was told the bones were that of a former Air Force Academy student.

Authorities say his name is Richard Ashbacher. He was reported missing in 2007 after moving here from Iowa. According to the Heidi Search Center’s Web site, the Air Force Academy student spent the night at a friend's apartment nearby.

But the next morning he was gone and had left some clothes behind, along with his cell phone.

Investigators are still working to figure out Ashbacher’s cause of death.
