BOONE COUNTY, AR – Human remains found on Sunday near the Arkansas-Missouri state line are believed to be those of a man reported missing more than three months ago.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) reported via a news release issued Wednesday that items recovered at the scene indicate the deceased’s identity as Steven P. Garrett, 50, of Omaha. He had last been seen Dec. 8 at the State Line RV Park on Hwy. 14 West.
The remains were found near U.S. Hwy 65 between State Hwy. 14 and the Missouri state line.
Investigators are awaiting scientific identification from the Arkansas State Crime Lab.
An extensive search was conducted in December to find Garrett.
The BCSO says circumstances surrounding Garrett’s disappearance and death do not appear to be of a suspicious nature but the investigation is not yet complete.
