CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities have identified human remains found this past week in central Wyoming as a Kansas man who disappeared six years ago.

Natrona County Coroner Connie Jacobson says the remains of Michael Fuksa, of Olathe, Kansas, were identified through dental records.

Jacobson also determined that the 22 year old died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Fuksa had been missing since June 2009, when he was last seen changing a flat tire on Interstate 25 outside Wheatland in southeast Wyoming.

His remains were found Sunday near Casper by hikers. They will be turned over to family members.
