The Wichita Police Department has identified the human bones found last month northeast of Derby.
At approximately 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 30, officers responded to 55th Street South and Clifton after a hunter observed skeletal remains in a wooded area.
Investigators examined the area and collected evidence. The skeletal remains were sent to the Sedgwick County Regional Forensic Science Center who confirmed the identity as 56-year-old Donald Cook of Wichita
In May 2017, police went to a home and made contact with a woman who reported Cook missing.
Police do not believe the man’s death was suspicious.
