DAVIESS COUNTY, Ind. — Human remains found in the Maysville area last fall have been determined to be those of a missing Daviess County man.

Through DNA testing, investigators were able to identify Dan Grannan, who had been missing since August of 2019, according to Sheriff Gary Allison. No cause of death was reported.

When Grannan was first reported missing, his daughter, Lori Grannan Jones, told WAWV that he left his car, his wallet and his rescue inhaler behind.
