PD: Remains of missing BMX rider found

Posted at 6:48 PM, Jan 25, 2016

The remains of a 25-year-old BMX rider who went missing in 2013 have been found, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

Officials said Monday that Brian Histand’s remains were found recently near 35th Avenue and Dobbins Road, the same area where he went missing. This is also near South Mountain.

Histand’s vehicle was towed from the same area by Phoenix police on May 17, 2013, after his keys were discovered in an open field. Police said they do not suspect foul play in his disappearance.

Friends said Histand was an expert BMX bicycle rider, and has spent many times at skate parks in the Glendale area. Prior to his disappearance, Histand had relocated to Phoenix from Pennsylvania and was unfamiliar with the area.
