WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) -- A south-central Kansas sheriff says human remains that turned up in a field are those of a man reported missing eight months ago.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/WnBbKY ) Cowley County authorities used dental records to identify the remains Monday as those of 37-year-old Corbin Wilt. The Winfield man's wife had reported his disappearance last May.

The Cowley County sheriff's office says it doesn't suspect foul play, but the cause of death is under investigation.

A dog discovered a human bone in the field Friday, prompting authorities to search the spot northwest of Winfield over the weekend for more remains.

Police had looked in the same area shortly after Wilt's disappearance after detecting a signal from his cellphone.
