TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The state medical examiner has identified bones found along an Okmulgee County creek as those of a Tulsa man who disappeared nearly a year ago.

The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/1iCwE7X ) that hunters found 50-year-old Steven Dwain Shelton’s bones washed to shore on Oct. 25. The medical examiner identified the remains as Shelton on Tuesday using dental comparison.

The medical examiner has not released the cause of death, but authorities think Shelton died from exposure to the elements.

A news release from the Okmulgee County Sherriff’s office says Shelton was last seen in a wooded area near Beggs in 2014. Sheriff’s deputies made contact with him as he was walking, but Shelton refused help.
