Daniel Mossett, 31, who has been missing since November, was identified through an autopsy by the North Dakota medical examiner’s office, according to Fort Berthold Reservation authorities.

Mossett is believed to have been living in New Town when he disappeared but had family in the Twin Buttes area, said Three Affiliated Tribes Chief of Police Chad Johnson.

Mossett’s body was seen floating the Missouri River and passed under the Four Bears Bridge before continuing south down the river at about 8 a.m. Monday, according to a statement from the McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office. A boat was used to float Mossett’s body to awaiting agencies on the shore.
