Jonathan Richard Gardenour, 27, was last seen walking near a Kroger supermarket on North Roxboro Road on March 31. He was reported missing two days later.

On Aug. 2, a man flagged down a police officer to report that he had found remains in the woods off of North Roxboro Road.

The cause of Gardenour's death hasn't been determined, police said.
