Timaru man Darryl McNee, 44, went missing at the beginning of May, and his station wagon was found at the end of Connolly Rd in Seadown.

His disappearance had come as a surprise to family and friends and a search of the area, including the beach, turned up nothing.

However, the police have now confirmed the remains that washed up weeks later on a beach near Washdyke were his.
