The human remains discovered in Rutherford County last week have been identified as a missing 58-year-old Murfreesboro man, WGNS Radio reported.

The remains of Dale Gaines were found off Big Springs Road in Christiana on Febuary 3.

Authorities previously said they believe the remains had been in the area for several months before the discovery.

Gaines was reported missing by family members in September after he left his Murfreesboro home and failed to return home.

At the time of his disappearance, family members said he was suffering from cancer and was in need of medication on a daily basis.

Last month the family made a public plea for information in locating Gaines.

Police have yet to release his cause of death.
