Hikers found skeletal remains Sunday in an area of Grayson Lake so remote, police needed boats to get there. Police confirmed the remains were Nathan Barker, who went missing about one year ago.
Barker's sister say she feels like she is mourning her brother for a second time.
"A lot of grief and sorrow, you think you go through it once, and then all this happens, and then you relive all of it all over again. We just want answers, and we want anybody with information to come forward, no matter how big, or small" said Kelly Cordial, Nathan's sister.
Cordial says somebody out there knows something. The Kentucky State Police say they have several people they want to interview and follow up with. They are calling this a death investigation.
"At this point it's still too early in the investigation to make a determination on how the individual got to the location. The Medical Examiner has not released a cause, or manner of death," said Trooper Michael Murriell of KSP.
Rather than giving the family closure, Kelly Cordial says the news opened up old wounds.
