Authorities Thursday identified the skeletal remains found in a Longview creek bottom as a man who was reported missing by family in July.
Justice of the Peace Arthur Fort said pathologists confirmed the man's identity as 62-year-old Silas Eugene Moore of Longview.
Moore's remains were found Dec. 21 in a creek bottom on Sabine Street by a Longview construction worker and his 6-year-old son who were looking at minnows in the creek.
At the time, police spokeswoman Kristie Brian said investigators found a wallet with identification in Moore's pants pocket, but they were waiting on a positive confirmation of his identity from the pathologist.
