Human remains found in Joshua Tree National Park identified as Guelph, Ont. man

The family of Paul Miller says human remains found in California’s Joshua Tree National Park have been identified as those of the Guelph, Ont., man who went missing in July 2018.

According to a post by family friend Ainsley Otten on the Find Paul Miller Facebook group, the coroner’s office contacted Miller’s wife on Tuesday to confirm the remains found were her husband’s.

The remains were found near the 49 Palms Oasis Trail by park rangers in late December. The discovery came after drones were used in the park to aid in the search for Miller.

In an earlier interview with Global News, Miller’s sister Dawne Robinson said an organization used the drones to take thousands of photographs and their analysis revealed possible bones in a remote, rocky and steep area.

Miller’s family sent his dental records to the coroner’s office just before Christmas to help with identification.
