    The remains of an American World War II soldier missing in action for nearly 70 years have reportedly been identified after they were found on the Pacific’s Northern Mariana Islands.

    I found the Carneal family of Kentucky on Ancestry.com. I am 99.9% certain this is the right group. They weren't hard to find and I certainly hope they will be notified very soon of their brother/cousin/uncle's location.

    Weird. My maiden name is Carneal. Strange seeing it as the title on a thread.

    I sent the article to my Dad on the off-chance it's a relative.
