The remains a boy found in Federal Way last week have been identified as Faatoaga Ufuti by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Ufuti was 43 when he was reported missing March 12 of last year, according to Crime Stoppers Tacoma/Pierce County. The father of three was last seen at his house in Lakewood before his wife fell asleep. When she woke up, he was gone.
Federal Way Police found the man’s remains in a wooded area Feb. 22 near the 36000 block of 20th Avenue Southwest after a boy found a femur bone and gave it to his parents.
Police ask anyone with more information on Ufuti’s disappearance to call Detective Jeff VanderVeer at 253-835-6791 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
