    The human remains a hunter found in a Colchester state forest on Nov. 28 have been identified as a 60-year-old Deep River man.

    Police identified him as Jeffrey P. Ziobron, 60, of Deep River, and said there is no criminal aspect of the investigation.

    A hunter found Ziobron’s remains along the Air Line State Park Trail, near an ATV path off the trail within Salmon River State Forest, state police said.

    Clothing half buried in the ground nearby appeared to have been there for years.

    An article in the Haddams-Killingworth Patch from 2013 said he was reported missing on May 2, 2013 and there was a report of a sighting in the Hebron-Lebanon area of the Airline Train a month later.
