    Authorities have identified the remains of a man who disappeared from Northern Virginia nearly two years ago.

    The skeletal remains -- found by a tree-trimming crew in in Frederick, Md., in August -- have been confirmed as those of 30-year-old Oscar Velasco Montano.

    He was last seen July 9, 2011 at a construction job at Tysons Corner Center in McLean. His family reported him missing two days later.

    In December of that year, police determined the circumstances of his disappearane to be mysterious.

    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 his cause of death yet, but are investigating his death as a possible homicide.
