    John Meeth

Skeletal remains found in brush near Hawaii Kai have been identified as a 55-year-old Nuuanu man who was last seen in 2019.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man as John Meeth, who was last seen at his Nuuanu home on May 29, 2019.

Human remains were discovered Oct. 27 in thick brush near Kalanianaole Highway and Kealahou Street.

There were no signs of foul play, police said.

An investigator from the Medical Examiner’s Office said it could take a “very long time” to determine the cause of death from the skeletal remains.

Correction: Police say that John Meeth was last seen on May 29, 2019. An earlier version of this story had an incorrect date.
