Husted was originally reported missing on Jan. 22, 2018, when he was 18 years old. He would have since turned 24.

His remains were located Tuesday by turkey hunters, the state patrol said. The sheriff's office there requested the assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

He worked as a power washer in a hog barn there, and left Centerville with a co-worker.

Husted went missing before the birth of his first son.
