INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Investigators say no foul play is suspected in the death of a man whose remains were found over the summer along the Little Blue River.

The Jackson County Sheriff said at a news conference Monday that the remains were those of 28-year-old Christopher Porter. The Kansas City Star reported that the mentally disabled Independence man walked away from a hospital in February.

Porter’s phone was found on a bridge over the river.

Authorities began investigating in June when kayakers came across bones from a hand while walking along the Little Blue River.  Then eight days later, a shoe with a foot inside turned up about 10 miles downstream.

The foot was taken to the county crime lab, and the hand was sent to the University of Texas for identification.
