ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (KGWN) - Authorities say human remains found in southwestern Wyoming are those of a Superior man who was reported missing in 2015.

Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell and Coroner Dale Majhanovich said in a joint statement Friday that dental records helped identify the man as 59-year-old Darrell Sowder, whose body was found by a cadaver search dog Tuesday.

Sowder was last seen at his home Oct. 2, 2015.

Investigators have not said how he died.
