PHOENIX — Authorities have determined that human remains found north of Rimrock, Arizona, on New Year’s Day belonged to a missing man from California.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputies discovered the remains of Shane Rollman, 31, in a wash near Dry Beaver Creek, 2 miles northwest of the McGuireville rest area.

Authorities said Rollman’s remains were in a thick brush and in advanced state of decay.

Investigators collected clothing from the scene and searched for any additional potential evidence.

Rollman’s body was given to the YCSO medical examiner, who was working to identify the cause of death.

Rollman’s vehicle was found abandoned at the McGuireville rest stop on Sept. 23. Rollman, from West Covina, California, could not be located during an ensuing search.

No further information has been released.
