GENE AUTRY, Okla. (KXII) - Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant says the skull and bones found in a Gene Autry field last March have been identified as Brandon Nichols, 35.
The remains were found in a field near Jay Bird Lane and Happy Trail by a local ranch worker in March of 2017.
Nichols went missing in 2014 and was last seen off Happy Trail Road and Mount Pleasant Road - less than a mile away from where the skull was found.
A lab report from Oklahoma City released the identity Thursday.
