    TX - Lamesa, Skeletal remains found near landfill, Apr'16 - Trevor Wright

    http://www.pressreporter.com/Content...ound/1/11/3852

    An investigation by Texas Rangers reportedly was underway this past week into the identification of a human skull and skeletal bones that were found last Sunday afternoon on some city-owned land near the city landfill south of Lamesa...

    Both Captain Hogg and Chief Deputy Ortegon said the skeletal remains appeared to have been laying on top of the ground and not covered by anything, although they probably had been hidden from view by tall weeds in the area.

    On Friday, May 8, 2015 the Dawson County Sheriff's Office investigated a red in color Kawasaki motorcycle from Florida that had been abandoned just south of the city limit, next to highway 87...

    It is believed based on items found at and around the scene of the skeletal remains that this could be those of the motorcyclist.

    Sounds like they think the remains are those of Travis Austin Wright, missing from Orlando, FL since May 2015. His red Kawasaki motorcycle was found in Texas last year.

    “The young man had just gotten out of a mental health facility the Monday that he disappeared, according to his father, and his parents are very concerned over his disappearance.”

    Was searching for updates to see if they've officially identified the remains & realized I'd typed the name incorrectly in my previous post. I think this is Trevor Austin Wright (sorry - my husband's name is Travis). Here is a link to his Namus profile:

    These remains were identified as Trevor Austin Wright last year. Not sure why his Namus profile is still active. I'll email the Namus contact tonight and send them this article. RIP Trevor.

    That probably means that they didn't find all of his remains.

    I️ emailed over the summer and didn’t hear back. Followed up earlier today and Carrie from NamUs replied that she’s still awaiting confirmation.
