COUNCIL BLUFFS (KPTM)- The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation has identified skeletal remains found near a Council Bluffs interstate on October 11th.
Investigators said 21-year-old Chance Fletcher of Omaha was last seen in 2011. Fletcher was driving in a stolen car when a Carter Lake officer attempted to pull him over. Eventually the chase ended in Council Bluffs, near the I-480 bridge, after Fletcher wrecked the car he was in and escaped.
The Omaha Police Department's Missing Person's Unit was investigating cold cases when they coordinated a search of the area on October 11th, with the assistance of the Council Bluffs Police Department. The discovery of the skeletal remains were located in a drainage ditch on the south side of the I-480 bridge.
The Iowa State Medical Examiner's Office used known dental records to identify the remains.
