CARTER COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Carter County Sheriff's Office confirms remains found in the Mark Twain National Forest Sunday belong to a Michigan man who has been missing since February.

Carter County Sheriff Richard J. Stephens says multiple K-9 teams from the Missouri Regional 6 Technical Rescue Team were in a training session when they found the remains in the Mark Twain National Forest.

Frederick Daniel Byrne of Big Rapids, Michigan has been missing since February. His vehicle was found in the Mark Twain National Forest on February 14, 2013.

The autopsy was completed at the Mineral Area Hospital in Farmington.

There was no evidence of criminal activity, according to the sheriff's office.

"Those dogs are very impressive," Sheriff Stephens said.

The remains were found at 12:13 p.m. and were in an advanced state of decomposition.

The Carter County Sheriff's Office, the National Forest Service Law Enforcement & Investigations, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol Division of Drug and Crime Control are investigating.
