Skeletal remains identified as man missing since 2009; was diagnosed with terminal illness


IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (AP) -- Police say they've identified skeletal remains found outside Rochester in April as those of a city man who had been missing since 2009.

Authorities in the suburban town of Irondequoit (uh-RAHN'-duh-kwoyt) say 78-year-old David Clarke had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and released from a local hospital shortly before his disappearance.

A missing persons report was filed with the Rochester Police Department in July 2009.

Hikers found his remains off of North Kings Highway.

Police say the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office hasn't determined a cause of death. That portion of the investigation is continuing.
