ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A Roswell family is back in possession of the stolen ashes of two relatives.

Anthony Garcia says the remains of his wife and stepson were returned to a funeral home Thursday after going missing from a storage unit earlier this month.

Jose Luis Hernandez told the Roswell Daily Record (https://bit.ly/1Tkp9iY) that he was walking near the storage facility when he found the sets of remains behind a bush.

Hernandez figured out what they were after he saw an ad Garcia had placed in the newspaper about the lost remains.

Garcia says someone broke into his storage unit and took several items. But he only wanted the ashes back.

They are now locked in a safe at the funeral home until they can be spread during a planned trip to Oregon.
