Police in Watertown, Massachusetts, say the remains discovered on Deer Island earlier this month are those of a missing man.
Nolan Gargas, 26, of Watertown, was first reported missing by his family in May. His car - a gray, 206 Toyota sedan - was found near the water in the East Point area of Nahant.
His remains were discovered by a fisherman on June 8 and were positively identified later.
The manner of Gargas’ death is undetermined.
Police believe he left his home in Watertown and traveled to Nahant.
