The remains were found by a boater in Dyes Inlet on Sunday. On Wednesday, the Kitsap County Coroner’s Office identified the remains as those of John H. Huntwork, 20, the Kitsap Sun reported.
Huntwork’s parents contacted police July 28 to report that their son had last been seen in downtown Bremerton July 27. He was reportedly leaving downtown Bremerton and heading to his parents house in the 600 block of North Lafayette or his girlfriend’s house in the 1300 block of Lincoln Avenue. Huntwork did not show up at either of those locations.
Huntwork’s 1991 white Honda Civic 4-door sedan was located locked and unoccupied at the north end of Elizabeth Avenue in Bremerton. Police checked the park and surrounding area near where the car was found, but Huntwork was not found. Police said there were no signs of foul play.
