Remains of missing man found in remote San Diego County

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Human remains found in a rugged area of San Diego County have been identified as that of a man who vanished before Christmas from a local home.

Christopher Paul Parkhurst, 47, went missing on Dec. 23 from a home in Potrero, an unincorporated area in the southeastern county near the Mexican border, authorities said.

He was diabetic and had suffered a stroke sometime before he vanished, according to the county Sheriff’s Department.

His remains were found Thursday in nearby Dulzura, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The two remote areas are separated by rocky, shrub-covered hills, the paper said.

Autopsy results will determine the cause of Parkhurst’s death.
