The medical examiner's office has confirmed the remains of a body found in Belmont over the weekend are that of a man who's been missing for two-and-a-half years.
Deer hunters discovered the remains of 68-year-old Charles Springer of Belmont Saturday.
State police say he was positively identified last night through dental records.
Springer's been missing since May of 2008 after he wandered away from his home on the Halls Corner Road.
He was the subject of several searches after that.
His body was found just a few miles from his house. Police say there's no indication of foul play.
This was the third time in a month deer hunters have discovered a body.
