Statement from DMR Commissioner on Tylar Michaud

We received confirmation yesterday from the Office of Chief Medical Examiner that the body recovered near Addison on August 21st was Tylar Michaud. 

I’m grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support that followed Tylar’s disappearance. The efforts of all who joined in the difficult search were unprecedented. Many agencies and individuals devoted countless hours to this search. It speaks volumes about the profound impact a loss like this can have.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tylar’s family and friends today.
