The skeletal remains of a New York City man missing since 2011 were recently identified after being discovered in New Jersey, authorities said Monday. 

The remains were those of Kevin Morris, 21, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement. Morris was 32 when he was reported missing in October 2011. 

He was last seen on Staten Island. He told his friends he was going to visit his girlfriend, according to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. 

Morris had no known physical or mental problems, authorities said. Investigators were unsure how he ended up in New Jersey.
