Human remains discovered Tuesday in northeast Mercer County have been identified. The Highway Patrol reported that the remains were identified as those of Sebastian Tyrese (“Ty”) Husted—a 24-year-old black male from Centerville, Iowa. The patrol stated that Husted had been missing for more than six years. The Centerville, Iowa Police initially took a missing person report in early 2018.

Information from the Missing Persons Support Center revealed that “Ty” Husted was last seen on January 22, 2018. He had reportedly been working at a hog confinement facility near South Lineville in Mercer County. A search of the facility yielded no clues. It was reported that Husted carpooled with a co-worker, as he did not have his own transportation when he disappeared. Husted was 18 years old at the time. Media sources in Iowa indicate that Husted worked as a power washer in a hog barn and had left Centerville with a co-worker. When he disappeared, Husted was described as five feet 11 inches tall and weighed 200 pounds.

The patrol reported that the remains were discovered on Tuesday by a turkey hunter on private property in northeast Mercer County. No further information was released on Tuesday.

The Highway Patrol says the death investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department at 660-748-3165 or the Centerville, Iowa Police Department at 641-437-7100.
