Human remains found on a boulder-strewn hillside in Cabazon have been identified as those of a 31-year-old man reported missing in 2009, authorities said Tuesday.
Jason Timothy Swenddal was a resident of Cabazon when he disappeared, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
The remains were discovered last week in the hilly area near Eucalyptus Street and Ida Avenue, authorities said.
The investigation into Swenddal's death is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call (951) 922-7100.
