A family member reported Douglas Benjamin Hegge, of Osino, missing in September 2019. Also missing is Beth Agee-Morrison, of Osino, who was reportedly with Hegge at the time. Osino is just off Interstate 80 west of Elko.
A person found a possible human bone in a rural area in the county, which was sent to the coroner’s office for identification. The time and exact place of the discovery was not released.
A positive DNA match came back on the bone to Hegge, officials said.
