Authorities Say Human Remains Found In Calif. Are Those Of Ohioan

WILLITS, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in northern California say human remains found in a wooded area last week have been identified as those of an Ohio man.

A spokesman for the Mendocino County Sheriff's Department says forensic testing has confirmed the man's identity as Jonathan Owens of Columbus.

The family of the 29-year-old says they hadn't heard from Owens since last April. A cause of death has not been determined, but authorities say there's no evidence of foul play. It's not clear why Owens was in the Willits, California, area, but investigators say he had been traveling the country by hitchhiking and taking buses.

His body was discovered by a cross-country bicyclist.
