GOLDSBORO, N.C. — Goldsboro police say a skeleton discovered last week belongs to a man who had been missing for six years.

William Cayton, 56, was last seen in February 1997. His remains were discovered last week in a wooded area on Clingman Street.

Police say there is no indication of foul play.

They believe Cayton had been living in the wooded area a few days before his death.
