State Police said human remains found at a secluded area of Grayson Lake in Carter County on Sunday have preliminarily been identified as Nathan Barker, 21, of Olive Hill, who had been missing since July 12, 2011.

Published reports said Barker's car was found smashed into a guardrail along Route 7 near Grayson Lake in July of last year, but Barker had never been found.

Investigators said the cause and manner of death haven't been determined.

Positive identification is also pending completion of DNA testing.

State Police have not said if a wallet found in the area of the remains belonged to Barker.

The investigation continues.
