Skeletal remains found in the Shrewsbury River have been identified as a Tinton Falls kayaker who had been missing since 2010, according to multiple news reports.
The State Police said the remains have been identified, using dental records, as David Civile, 28.

According to Westfield Patch, Civile disappeared during a kayak trip down the Shewsbury River on Nov. 17. Authorities searched for him for four days but turned up nothing.
Civile was the manager of the Trader Joes in Westfield at the time of his disappearance. He was a native of Cranford, but moved to Tinton Falls in 2008.
