It was September 21st that young Lane Roslund from Hastings, 17, was reported missing. His family and friends were worried. He had been missing for for nearly 10-days, last seen on September 11 at Tyden Park. For whatever reason, no one called the police. Then, the Hastings Police Department was finally called on the 21st.

The Michigan State Police Wayland Post got involved in the case, and sadly reported that they have found human remains in a shallow grave Thursday that they believe to be those of the teenager reported missing last month.

Fox 17 reported Troopers executed a search warrant Wednesday at a home in Hastings Township as part of helping Hastings police investigate the teen’s missing person case. The search warrant was obtained based on new information a witness gave detectives, according to a news release, and that is when they found the human remains in that  shallow grave on the property during their search. An autopsy will take place to determine the manner of death and to positively identify the body.

During further investigations, troopers turned up another 17-year-old Hastings teen as a suspect and arrested him on charges of open murder and concealing the death of an individual.

The Barry County Prosecutor's Office says Patrick Hunter Gilmore faces up to five years in prison for the death concealment charge.

He was arraigned Thursday in Hastings District Court and bond was set at $750,000 cash or surety.

The Michigan State Police and Hastings Police Department say the investigation is continuing.
