OCALA, Fla. (AP) – The human remains found strapped in a single-engine plane that was missing for months will be sent to a University of Florida lab for identification.

Sheriff’s officials in Marion County said Wednesday the C.A. Pound Human Identification Laboratory in Gainesville will evaluate the remains found late Sunday in a wooded area south of Ocala.

The experimental-type two-seat plane was owned by Theodore Weiss, who was also the last person known to have flown the aircraft.

The Ocala StarBanner (http://bit.ly/1yoIbKV ) reports Weiss was last seen departing Dunnellon Airport on April 5 and never arrived at his destination in Zephyrhills.

Dozens of agencies searched for Weiss after he went missing. The plane was found about 5 miles from the airport.
