    Human remains found believed to be of missing veteran last seen February 2020, League City PD says

    On Monday, League City police said they are conducting a death investigation in the 2100 block of Gun Range Road, where the human remains were found.

    The remains were found at a construction site, 100 yards north of the roadway in heavy vegetation. Workers who were clearing land in the area found personal belongings, including a backpack, along with the remains.

    While the body has not been identified, authorities believe the remains are that of 36-year-old Aaron Balaban, who was reported missing in League City on Feb. 10, 2020. Balaban was said to have walked away from his parents' home at around 10:30 p.m., and had not been seen or heard from since.

    "He just walked out of the door and didn't say anything," David White with EquuSearch said in a 2020 interview. "He took his phone and his billfold."

    Body believed to be missing soldier found in wooded area in League City | khou.com

    Balaban’s father told KHOU 11 News that it was clear his son did not want to be found and said it wasn’t surprising, considering his son’s military history.

    League City Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call authorities.

    https://www.star-telegram.com/news/state/texas/article252424538.html


    Monday morning, construction workers found a body about 100 yards off a League City road in heavy vegetation, police said. Investigators believe the body belongs to Balaban.

    Personal belongings and a backpack were also found at the scene, police said. The site is of a newly announced Amazon distribution center, according to the Galveston Daily News.

    Forensic investigators are collecting evidence and the body will be taken to the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office.
