BATESVILLE, AR (AP & KAIT) - Authorities say skeletal remains found in Van Buren County are that of a Batesville man who's been missing for nearly a month.

Independence Sheriff Department Detective Mike Mundy confirmed Wednesday afternoon that the remains found did belong to 27-year-old Barry Lynn Treadway. He had been missing since July 19.

Van Buren County Sheriff Scott Bradley says the body was found in a very remote area of the county about seven miles from where Treadway's car was found July 25 with a flat tire on Highway 27 near the town of Tilly.
