A Home Office Pathologist will come to Guernsey next week to see if suspected skeletal remains found in a burnt-out car are human.
Police are also now working with a fire expert from the UK to see who the car belongs to.

The vehicle was found in a secluded area of the island’s south-coast on Monday, where it had been badly-damaged after being set alight.
Police say if the remains are found to be human, a post-mortem will be carried out.
The force are also continuing to look for a Latvian man, who they say could possibly be linked to the incident.
33 year old Mikus Alps was last seen in the early hours of Monday morning.
He is described as being around 5’9” tall with fair skin, blue eyes, short brown hair and a short beard. He also has distinctive tattoos on his arms and back.
Family Liason Officers remain in close contact with his family.
Despite admitting that the two incidents could be connected, police insist they are still keeping an open mind about the potential direction of this investigation.
If anyone has any information, they are asked to contact Guernsey CID on 01481 725111, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
