Remains of Missing Va. Man Found in Md. After Two Years

FREDERICK, Md. — Authorities say they’ve found the remains in Frederick of a man who disappeared from northern Virginia nearly two years ago.

The skeletal remains, found by a tree-trimming crew in August, have been confirmed as those of 29-year-old Oscar Velasco Montano.

He was last seen in July 2011 at a construction job at Tysons Corner Center in McLean.

Capt. Tim Clarke of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office tells the Frederick News-Post that Fairfax County police are investigating Montano’s death as a homicide.

He says Montano was identified through DNA testing. Authorities haven’t released the cause of death yet.
