COXSACKIE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say test results show a skull found in wetlands along the Hudson River is that of a man 20 to 50 years old, not a 12-year-old upstate New York boy who disappeared a decade ago.

A hiker found the skull Feb. 26 in a swamp in the Greene County town of Coxsackie (kuk-SAHK’-ee). The discovery prompted speculation that it belonged to Jaliek (juh-LEEK’) Rainwalker, who disappeared from his adoptive parents’ home in Greenwich in Washington County in November 2007.

On Thursday, state police said the skull was not from a 12-year-old but from an adult male whose identity is unknown.

Police say investigators will use DNA testing to see if the remains match any missing person case.
