Remains found near Bastyr University are from man missing since 2006

Human remains found last Thursday in a wooded area near Bastyr University have been identified as a missing Kenmore man.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office says the remains belonged to Brian MacDonald, who was reported missing on April 4, 2006.  MacDonald, 46, had dropped his daughter off at school and told her he was going for a walk. He was never seen again.

On Thursday detectives were called to a wooded area near Bastyr University after two students discovered the remains. Detectives said the area was heavily wooded and remote but was near some well traveled trails.

Detectives said they are looking into MacDonald’s activities at the time of his disappearance but there is no indication of foul play, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
