Skeletal Remains Identified

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) _ Remains of two men who have been missing
for more than 10 years have been identified.

Erik D. Cohler, of Port Charlotte, and John C. Blevins, of Fort Myers, were identified by comparing DNA from the bones to DNA from their families.

Their remains were among eight skeletons found in March at a remote site down a dirt road in an industrial section of the city near Interstate 75.

Cohler disappeared in October 1995.

Blevins was never reported missing. His family members contacted
police after hearing the eight skeletons were discovered.
