KSNF/KODE — Officials confirm skeletal remains found in Colorado are those of a former Joplin man, who went missing back in 2021.
Hikers in Colorado discovered the remains on September 25th of last year in the area of Middle Mountain Road in Pagosa Springs.
The “Pagosa Springs Police Department” announced Friday the remains were officially identified as 42-year-old Michael Kroll.
