Police said Saturday that more human remains have been found on New York's Long Island, in the same area where authorities are hunting for a possible serial killer.

In a statement obtained by FoxNews.com, the Suffolk County Police Department said the remains -- confirmed to be human -- were discovered by a man walking his dog in Manorville, N.Y., at around 6:30 p.m. Friday.

The skeletal remains were found in a heavily wooded area about 300 feet off a road., police said. They are being brought to the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner.

The site in Manorville is close to where a woman's torso was found in 2000. The victim's head, hands and foot were later found at Gilgo Beach, where the remains of seven women, a man and a toddler were also discovered.

Police believe that all 10 victims were connected to the sex trade and that a serial killer is likely to blame. Four of the victims were young female escorts who advertised their services on Craigslist. Their bodies were found wrapped in burlap bags and dumped in thick brush along a deserted stretch of Ocean Parkway.

Police were searching for missing prostitute Shannan Gilbert in Dec. 2010 when they discovered the first set of human remains. Gilbert's remains were later found in Nov. 2011, but authorities do not believe her death was related to the others. Police have said they believe the 24-year-old woman drowned accidentally after running from a client's home for an unknown reason.

Authorities are urging anyone with information to contact the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
