    New Jersey State Police say skeletal remains found in the Shrewsbury River have been identified as those of a kayaker missing since 2010.

    Authorities said Thursday the remains have been identified as 28-year-old David Civile of Tinton Falls.

    New Jersey State Police Sgt. Brian Polite says the remains were found Nov. 28 by a contractor making repairs to a dock by a home along the river.

    The Monmouth County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the remains Wednesday.

    Polite says detectives investigating the remains were advised that an unsuccessful multi-agency search for a missing kayaker identified as Civile had been conducted in the area on Nov. 17, 2010.

    The cause and manner of Civile's death are still under investigation.
