ATLANTA (AP) - A missing Georgia man found dead is once again missing: His remains were shipped through FedEx and lost.

Fulton County Chief Medical Examiner Jan Gorniak tells reporters that Jeffrey Merriweather Jr.’s remains were shipped in June so an expert in St. Louis could determine a cause of death. But the package never arrived. Gorniak says package tracking shows the remains were last recorded at a FedEx warehouse in Austell, Georgia.

WSB-TV reports a FedEx representative says the remains weren’t found at the warehouse, and the company is investigating.

Merriweather’s father says the family held a funeral without his body. The 31-year-old man was reported missing in mid-June and found dead later that month. His death remains under investigation.
