The Texas Rangers and other agencies have finished processing the scene, located near FM 1298 and CR 3236 in Scurry County, southeast of the lake.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation sent a forensics team to help in the recovery of the skeletal remains. The remains -- which have not been identified by gender or age because of the state of decomposition -- were scattered about the area by wildlife. The area where the body was discovered is overgrown with mesquite and cacti.
Despite a report listing specific bones that were found at the scene, Department of Public Safety Information Officer Sparky Dean said he could not confirm those reports and said they did not come from investigators.
The FBI joined the Texas Rangers, DPS and Scurry County sheriff's office in the investigation on Monday. The remains will be sent to the medical examiner's office in either Tarrant County or Lubbock County, but that determination has not yet been made.
The remains were found by a private citizen Saturday afternoon. Investigators from the 32nd Judicial District, which is comprised of Mitchell, Nolan and Fisher counties, were at the sheriff's office over the weekend after the discovery of the body.
According to reports, the family of missing Colorado City teenager Hailey Dunn is in Snyder.
Billie Jean Dunn, Hailey's mother, told a Midland television station that she was told that a DNA test would not be performed and the remains would be identified by dental records.
Dean said neither the DPS nor the Texas Rangers have been in communication with Dunn.
A planned interview with Billie Jean Dunn with the Snyder Daily News Tuesday afternoon was cancelled by her attorney, John Young of Sweetwater. "At this time, we feel it would be better that Billie Jean not talk to any more media," Young said.
However, earlier in the day while arranging the interview, Dunn said that she was really hoping the remains were not her daughter's as she holds out hope she will be found alive.
"I know that would be some sort of answer, but I'm really hoping it's not her and I am praying for whomever it is," she said.
