KAILUA-KONA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Authorities on Hawaii Island have identified skeletal remains found on an undeveloped lot in Kailua-Kona earlier this month.

Police said Friday the remains belong to 80-year-old Ronald Brown, of Kailua-Kona. He was previously reported missing and was last seen on Aug. 29, 2021 on Kuakini Highway.

His remains were found off the same highway one year later.

Authorities were able to identify him via dental records.

Officials are still investigating his cause of death, but foul play is not suspected.
