DELHI TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Skeletal remains found in woods last week have been identified as a Cincinnati man reported missing two years ago, according to Delhi Township police.

The remains of Gary Clark, 35, were found in the 300 block of Rosemont Avenue on March 20. Clark was reported missing in May, 2017, police said Thursday.

Delhi investigators worked on this case with the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office, Cincinnati Police Department and Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

A man who had been walking in the woods found the remains, Delhi Assistant Chief Jeff Braun said at the time. Braun said the remains consisted of “very few pieces of bone structure,” and investigators didn’t know much about the person’s identity, how long they had been there or how the person died.

Only one of those questions had been answered by Thursday.

"What we'd like is anyone who knew Mr. Clark, knew his last whereabouts, who he's associated with, something that might be beneficial for our investigation," Lt. Joseph Macaluso said.

Delhi police are handling the death investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Delhi police at 513-922-0060 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
