The human remains found in Southlake this week have been identified as those of Joshua Michelson, 60, officials said Friday.
A utility worker on Monday found Michelson’s bones scattered in a wooded area off White Chapel Boulevard, near Texas 114.
Michelson had been in the area visiting a friend shortly before he disappeared in May, police spokeswoman Kim Leach said. He was reported missing on May 25.
Investigators had information that Michelson “had expressed a desire to harm himself,” Leach said.
The medical examiner’s office has not yet ruled on his cause of death. Police say they do not suspect foul play.
