SCOTTS MILLS, Ore., May 19 (UPI) -- The father of a missing Utah woman, Susan Powell, said investigators found bones in rural Oregon while searching for her, but the remains are probably not hers.

The West Valley City (Utah) Police Department concluded its search of a property in Scott Mills, Ore., Thursday, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

The search is the latest effort to find the remains of Powell, who was last seen Dec. 6, 2009, at her Utah home.

Powell's husband, Josh Powell, was a person of interest in the case, but was not charged. He committed suicide last year after killing the couple's two sons.

Police said they did not find any sign of Susan Powell at the property, which was rented by her husband's aunt and uncle at the time of her disappearance.

Her father, Chuck Cox, said the bones are likely from an animal.
