An urn possibly carrying the remains of someone who died more than almost two decades ago were found in Richland County earlier this month. 

A construction company was working in the area and checking for gas when an employee found the urn as he was washing his hands in the creek, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Office 

The urn was found under a small bridge on Rule Road. 

The name Casey Shawn is printed across the front of the urn. The date of birth on the urn is June 28, 1986, and the date of death is April 15, 1998. 

Deputies have not opened the urn, but they are looking for possible relatives 

Anyone with information should contact the Richland County Sheriff's Office at (419) 524-2412.
