KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City police say human remains found last year belonged to a man who was last seen in December 2007.

Police said Tuesday forensic anthropologists identified the body as Michael L. Henderson, who was 26 when his family reported him missing in July 2008.

Hikers found the bones in a wooded area of northeast Kansas City in September 2013.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1l3x6b5 ) the family told police Henderson was mentally ill and was regularly in trouble with the law but always kept in contact.

The Jackson County Medical Examiner say the body appeared to have been in the woods for six weeks to six months. The anthropologist did not find any signs of violence.

Detectives have not found any evidence of foul play but homicide detectives are investigating.
