The Cannon family released a statement Tuesday following the positive identification of Michael T. Cannon by the Office of Medical Investigation in Albuquerque this week.
The statement said, “The Cannon family would like to thank the community, friends, and their church family for their love, compassion and support. The family would also like to ask the community for privacy and thoughtfulness at this tender time. Thank you,” the statement said.
Cannon, who was 66 at the time of his disappearance on June 25, 2011, went out for a bike ride on some trails in the White Rock area and did not return.
The Los Alamos Police Department released a few more details on the case.
Cannon was reported missing the day before the Las Conchas Fire started in late June 2011.
According to the LAPD press release, residents reported seeing him walking in White Rock on the day of his disappearance.
Los Alamos police, family and community members began searching nearby trails and canyons near White Rock that day.
During the month of July 2011, wider searches were conducted around White Rock utilizing search and rescue, search dogs, police, civilians and aircraft.
A water search was also conducted along the Rio Grande.
