Body found on hillside identified as man who disappeared on hike in 2019, California police say

Human remains found on a hillside have been identified as a man who disappeared four years ago during an evening walk, California police reported.

Paul Farmer, 84, who had amnesia, never returned home from his walk on Aug. 26, 2019, Belmont police said in an Aug. 11 press release.

Despite extensive searches, Farmer could not be found, police said.

In May 2023, police learned that his ID had been found two months earlier in a waterway in San Mateo County, the release said.

That led officers to search a heavily wooded area just south of Highway 92 near Hillsdale Boulevard, police said.

Officers found human remains on slopes covered in thick undergrowth, police said. The remains were identified as belonging to Farmer.

“While we are deeply saddened by this tragic case, we are deeply grateful to the agencies that assisted us in locating Mr. Farmer and helping us complete this investigation,” the police wrote.
