MERRYVILLE, La. (AP) - The Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office says the LSU FACES Laboratory has confirmed that bones recently found in Merryville are those of Adam Davis of Merryville, who had been missing since Sept. 16.
Sheriff's office spokesman Joe Toler said when the bones were found this month that they didn't show any sign of foul play.
He said in a news release Friday that the bones will be released to Davis' family after a full examination, which should be completed soon.
An arrowhead hunter found the skull Nov. 6 in woods that can only be reached by boat. Toler said detectives were able to find 98 percent of the skeleton.
