DOÑA ANA COUNTY — A second search of the desert area near Vado where human remains were found last month has given Doña Ana County Sheriff’s investigators additional clues that might help identify those skeletal remains, they said.
Investigators followed several leads and also reviewed several missing persons reports after the March 22 discovery of a human jawbone and other remains near the Bishop’s Cap area east of Vado. A hiker in the area noticed the remains and called police.
In addition to a belt buckle and a shoe that were found, investigators also located a weathered baseball-style cap that could have been worn by the person whose remains were found. The cap is described as grey in color with the number 29 embroidered on the front and the name “Kevin Harvick” on the back. The name and number are associated with the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR).
Anyone who might be able to identify the cap, or has information on anyone who might have gone missing in that area of Doña Ana County is asked to call the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department at (575) 525-8897 or Las Cruces Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also send a tip via text message to CRIMES (274637), keyword LCTIPS.
