Remains will undergo genetic testing
Mexico City, Mexico — U.S. authorities are working with Mexican officials to determine whether a body found near a Pacific Coast beach town is that of a New York man who vanished while riding his motorcycle to Brazil for the World Cup.
U.S. Embassy spokesman Mark Johnson said Sunday both governments were working together to identify the remains, which police found Thursday along a road leading to Playa La Majahua in the state of Guerrero .
