OREGON (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Investigators in Oregon have found what's believed to be human remains in the search for a missing couple with Hawaii ties.

Terry and Sharon Smith were part-time Hawaii residents. They went missing in July and were last believed to have been at their cabin near the Malheur National Forest, according to local media reports.

Records show a mailing address linked the couple to Kurtistown in the Pahoa area of the Big Island. 

Investigators say the remains, which were found inside the cabin, are undergoing testing for positive identification.

The case is being treated as a homicide, and the FBI is assisting.
