SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) — Pettis County authorities say skeletal remains found in 2018 were those of a Sedalia man who has been missing for six years.
Pettis County Coroner Robert Smith identified the remains as 39-year-old Timothy Gibson, who was last seen on March 26, 2015, when he was taken to a hospital and then released.
The coroner said he was not able to determine a cause of death because of the condition of Gibson’s remains but there was no evidence of foul play.
A Missouri conservation agent found the remains on Oct. 27, 2018, in a densely wooded area.
