WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A Winston-Salem man has learned that the remains of his brother have been found and are being returned from South Korea, where he disappeared in 1951 during the Korean War.

The StarNews of Wilmington reports (https://bit.ly/1Rk3eHH) the remains of Army Pfc. Frank Worley of Wilmington will be returned next week for burial with full military honors in the Salisbury National Cemetery.

A Defense Department release says Worley and other soldiers were occupying a position near Hoengsong, South Korea, on Feb. 11, 1951, when Chinese forces overwhelmed the unit.

Worley was reported missing after the attack. Scientists identified his remains through various methods, including DNA comparison with his brothers Leroy, who lives in Winston-Salem, and Jack, who is coming to North Carolina from California for the burial.
