Remains Found In Daniel Boone National Forest Identified

MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) -- Remains found in rural northeast Kentucky have been identified as those of a Michigan man reported missing a decade ago.

Rowan County Coroner John Northcutt told WKYT-TV in Lexington (http://bit.ly/1v0UdZn ) that a skull and other bones found earlier this month in the Daniel Boone National Forest are those of Thomas Ray James of Grosse Pointe, Michigan.

James was 50-years-old when he was reported missing in August 2004.

Police say James' abandon car was found at a rest area not long after he was reported missing. The remains were found nearby.

Northcutt says the cause of death will be difficult to determine.
