TRUCKEE, CA - Truckee police say remains of a man found in July have been identified as a man missing since March 2014.

Duane Colin's family last heard from him March 28. His family says at the time he disappeared, he was talking about wanting to contact the Federal government, but no reason was given. He appeared to be in good physical health.

July 12, hikers near Donner Lake found skeletal remains, which went to an anthropology lab in Chico for analysis. That testing shows the remains are those of Colin, but no cause of death has been determined.

Anybody with information is asked to contact Det. Lopez at (530) 550-2336.
