Skeletal remains found late last fall in northeastern Forsyth County have been confirmed as those of a 44-year-old man reported missing more than a decade earlier.

Forsyth County Sheriff's Maj. Dan Jagoe said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirmed the remains are those of Timothy Dale Nagy.

"We're glad we were able to bring some closure to his family and the case has been cleared," said Jagoe, adding that Nagy had been on the sheriff's missing persons list since 2000.

Authorities found bones and pieces of clothing after a hunter discovered part of a skull Nov. 29 as he was walking in a wooded area of Dawsonville Highway, between Nix and Julian roads.

Jagoe said the agency spent about three days after the discovery searching a large area.
