The human remains found on a Nikiski beach have been identified as 37-year-old Floyd Hamrick, according to a Thursday dispatch from the Alaska State Troopers.
Hamrick, an Anchorage resident, was reported to the troopers as missing in December 2020. The next of kin have been notified.
People traveling on the beach in Nikiski reported the remains on April 29. State and Wildlife Troopers recovered the remains. The body was soon after sent to a crime lab for an autopsy.
According to Thursday’s dispatch report, there are “no obvious signs of foul play.”
Last week Gretchen Weiss-Brooks, an information officer with the Alaska Department of Public Safety, confirmed that the body had been exposed to water and the “elements.”
The investigation and cause of death is still under investigation.
