Skeletal remains found last month in a wooded area in Woodridge have been identified as a Lisle man missing for six years, authorities said Tuesday.

The remains were identified as Anthony Scott Arcaro, who was 37 when he was reported missing in 2007, Woodridge police said.

Two young people out for a walk in a wooded area near the 7900 block of Lemont Road found what appeared to be human remains about 1:30 p.m. March 30 and reported them to police.

The DuPage County coroner investigated evidence found at the scene by Woodridge police, the DuPage County sheriff's office forensic unit and the Felony Investigative Assistance Team to determine the remains are those of Arcaro.

The man's cause of death has not yet been determined. Lisle and Woodridge police and the coroner's office continue to investigate.

Anyone with information about Arcaro's case is asked to contact Woodridge police at (630) 719-4764 or
