NORMAN, Okla.—Authorities say they may have solved the mystery of an Oklahoma City man who went missing last spring.

Pascual Salazar was last heard from May 23 when he sent his wife a text, saying he went to their property in Norman to relax.

After Salazar didn’t show up for work the next day, his family went to look for him.

They found his truck but could not find him.

His credit cards and cell phone had not been used since his disappearance.

Authorities recently determined that a body found in Cleveland County last July is that of Salazar.

The Cleveland County Sheriff says the medical examiner’s office positively identified the 36-year-old using DNA from family members.

A cause of death has not been determined at this time.

Currently, the case is being investigated as a homicide.
