Federal and local authorities say remains found in Pender County last week belong to a missing Camp Lejeune Marine.
Corporal Stanley Bosley, who is a Native Navajo Indian, left Camp Lejeune in his car in February 2004 and was never seen again.
Bosley's car was found shortly after he disappeared in Hampstead.
Authorities say hunters stumbled upon a skeleton near where Bosley's car was found, and tests have confirmed they are that of Corporal Bosley.
It's not clear how he died but authorities don't suspect any foul play.
