Police Trying to Identify Skeletal Remains

A city worker discovered the remains frozen in thick ice on January 18th. Police say the remains were then taken to a lab where it took about a week for them to thaw out.

Officers believe the man has been missing since at least May or June of 2006.

Investigators say the remains belonged to a white man 30 to 40 years old and between 5 foot 10 and 6 feet tall.

The body was partially clothed in tan or brown warm-up style pants with cargo pockets. Just below the left pocket it says "Gold's Gym Core Training."
