The Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office positively identified the remains of a body found April 2 on the ocean shore south of the Columbia River as a missing man who was swept into the ocean by a tsunami on the northern California coast one month ago.
According to Dr. Chris Young, the body of DUSTIN DOUGLAS WEBER, age 25, was positively indentified by a forensic odontologist using dental records. WEBER was reported missing March 11 near the mouth of the Klamath River in Del Norte County, California.
On April 2, 2011 at approximately 8:30 a.m. a person walking on the beach reported finding the remains which were subsequently taken to the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office in Portland for positive identification.
Next of kin and Del Norte County Sheriff's Office were notified.
