The Border Patrol Missing Migrant Team is asking for help identifying the family of a man who they found dead near Tucson in July.

A rancher reportedly found the man's body and alerted officials, but they have yet to locate his family.

The body may belong to a migrant crossing the border. They say a medical examiner confirmed his fingerprints and matched them to a man born in 1946 in Jalisco, Mexico.

The Mexican Consulate has been unsuccessfully trying to locate the family to return his remains.

If you have any information, contact the Consulate of Mexico in Tucson at 520-623-7928.
