BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Officials with the Ada County coroner’s office have announced they will hold a memorial for nearly 60 unclaimed remains on Monday.

According to the county, the coroner’s office has spent hours trying to contact family members who can claim their loved one remains. At least one unclaimed remain has been at the coroner’s office since 1996.

Investigator Jaimie Barker says the county is focused on giving the remains dignity and a proper resting place rather than leave them in a closet. Furthermore, the county plans on holding these types of memorials on an annual basis because this won’t be the last unclaimed remains.

The public invited to attend the Boise ceremony.
