    Human remains discovered last Saturday off of N Dale Mabry Highway have been identified as a man who went missing almost one year ago.

    Victor Torres (W/M DOB: 11/11/1958) was reported missing by his family on July 9, 2018, when a relative could not locate him after arriving to pick Torres up from a doctor's appointment on the 14000 block of N Dale Mabry Highway.

    Torres' remains were found in a watery ditch last Saturday, July 6, by a worker in the area of N Dale Mabry Highway and Ehrlich Road.

    Torres' next of kin has been notified of the discovery.

    Foul play does not appear to be a factor in his death at this time. The remains are being sent from the Medical Examiner's Office to the University of South Florida for further examination.
