CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - After more than a week of searching, a relative of the homeless Vietnam veteran who died in Wyoming has been found.

Natrona County Coroner Connie Jacobson says she spoke with the sister of Stephen Reiman on Sunday night. Jacobson says the woman plans to attend Reiman’s funeral Tuesday.

Last week, Jacobson asked for help finding relatives of the Navy veteran who died Nov. 17 in Sheridan shortly after he moved to Wyoming.

Jacobson tells the Casper Star-Tribune (https://bit.ly/2gpO0oN ) that the sister, Diane Reiman, hadn’t heard from her brother for at least two years.

Jacobson says the sister is grateful that Reiman will have a decent burial with honor.

Services for Reiman are planned for 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery in Evansville. The public is welcome.
