Provincial police have identified remains found near Highway 401 and Morningside Avenue in Toronto on Saturday.

The man has been identified as Gary Edward Weese, 64, of Toronto who was reported missing by Toronto police on Sept. 28, 2016.

When Weese first went missing, the Toronto branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) issued a plea for help in locating him.
