HONOLULU (AP) — The Department of Defense says the remains of a serviceman missing in action from World War II have been identified and returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

U.S. Army Air Forces Capt. George W. Grismore of Salt Lake City is to be buried at sea Wednesday off the coast of Newport Beach, Calif.

The DOD's POW/Missing Personnel Office says Grismore was aboard a C-47A Skytrain that failed to return to Tanauan Airfield on the island of Leyte in the Philippines on March 12, 1945.

The crash site remained a mystery until it was discovered in 1989.

The Hawaii-based Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command worked to identify remains found at the site. The DOD says the identification was made through matching DNA from Grismore's nephew.
