"They were able to do that through dental records," Royal added.

Rose went missing after a November 2016 police chase. Authorities said they found his vehicle at White Cloud Campground. Rose and his passenger, 34-year-old Rickie Lynn Abel, disappeared.

A kayaker in March 2017 found Abel's remains at the mouth of Deer Creek, Royal said.
