JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Carroll County Sheriff Clint Walker says skeletal remains found in the Blackhawk area on January 3 have been identified as a missing Madison County man.

36-year-old Matthew Costello was reported missing on September 4, 2015.

Carroll County deputies noticed the abandoned vehicle partially blocking the road and a check of the car license plate showed it belonged to Costello.

No one was around the vehicle and it was later moved from the location.

Madison County Sheriff's Office contacted Carroll County Sheriff's Office advising that the car found in Carroll County belonged to a person that had been reported missing by family members in Madison County.

Carroll County Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations for cause of death.
