TORONTO - A human skull found near a golf course north of Toronto came from the body of a North York senior who went missing 18 months ago, York Regional Police announced Friday.
The remains discovered Jan. 13 in a wooded area near the Uplands Golf and Country Club in the City of Vaughan were those of Robert Hagans, 76, police said.
Hagans was reported missing in Toronto in July 2011.
The retired mechanical engineer, who worked for Manulife Holdings across North America, left his home without money or a cellphone.
He was working on a book about physics when he vanished.
The father of four was last seen walking to a Service Canada Building at 4900 Yonge St.
At a press conference shortly after he disappeared, his three sons said Hagans had experienced some memory loss but had never stayed out longer than a day.
While investigation and processing of the remains continues, police say the evidence does not suggest foul play.
The skull was found by a local citizen who was walking on the golf course grounds.
