The Shasta County Coroner's Office has confirmed that remains found just outside of Burney Saturday are those of missing 87-year-old San Francisco Bay area man Paul Merrill.

Merrill, a Belmont resident, was reported missing Sept. 4 when a family member said he had not been heard from after going on a trip to the Mt. Shasta area.

Police say there is no indication of foul play.

Merrill's wallet, car keys and other personal property were found in his Mercedes.
