DICKINSON, N.D. — State officials say the body found last week at a construction site in Dickinson is that of a 30-year-old man who has been missing for more than three years.
The Bismarck Tribune reports Eric Haider was identified by North Dakota State Forensic Examiner’s Office.
An examiner was able to positively identify Haider through medical records, distinguishable tattoos and personal effects found in the clothing on the body.
Haider went missing on May 24, 2012, at a work site in Dickinson where he had been working with a plumbing company. At the time, authorities excavated sites where trenches or pits were filled the day Haider disappeared.
Authorities have not given a cause of death and the body will continue to be examined.
