The Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division investigators and firefighters responded to a remote area in Yigo where remains, possibly of missing Michael Castro, were found.

An ambulance arrived at the scene in the Janum Point area Wednesday afternoon.

The parents of Michael Castro were called to the area.

Michael Jose Castro, 27, father to a little girl, was last seen on Oct. 29, 2020.

Authorities have yet to officially confirm if the remains were Michael Castro's.

But at the end of the search, the parents of Michael Castro and other family members thanked first responders and police investigators for their hard work and for not giving up on finding Michael Castro.

One of the two suspects in the killing of Michael Castro has been identified as 23-year-old Nicholas Wayne Moore.

The victim was shot in his car on Oct. 30, 2020, according to documents filed by authorities.

The victim's vehicle was found in the compound of a business being run by Moore's father.
