The body of a Laughlin resident who went missing last month has been found on the other side of the Colorado River in Bullhead City, Arizona. Jose “Daniel” Caballero, 80, who suffered from Alzheimer’s, was reported missing by family members on August 18.
Bullhead City police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said a man jogging in the desert located human remains Tuesday afternoon. She said evidence at the scene helped officers tentatively identify the remains as those of Caballero.
“There were no signs of foul play and Mr.Caballero was wearing the same clothing at the time he was reported missing,” Fromelt said. “He also had identification on him.”
Positive identification and cause of death determinations are pending with the Mohave County Medical Examiner.
