Maine State Police said Nov. 7 that human remains were found in Blue Hill today.  A deer hunter made the discovery in woods off the Grindleville Road this morning and contacted the Maine Warden Service.   Wardens, State Police detectives and the State Medical Examiner's Office responded to the scene. The remains have been recovered and  transported to the medical examiner's office in Augusta for examination and identification.    
State Police have been looking for Jessica Grindle, 37, of Blue Hill since August when she was reported missing.   Searches have taken place for her around two ponds near the Blue Hill-Sedgwick town line.  The Grindleville Road is near that area. 
The positive identification will take place by the medical examiner's office.  That process will begin Thursday.
