Human remains found in Florida were tentatively identified as Gannon Stauch, an 11-year-old boy who was last seen in El Paso County nearly two months ago, authorities confirmed Friday.

The remains were found by the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office, which called the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office on March 18, according to a new release.

The discovery comes nearly three weeks after authorities arrested Gannon’s stepmother, Letecia Stauch in his presumed murder.

Authorities are asking anyone who saw Letecia Stauch in Pace or Pensacola, Florida, between Feb. 3-5, to call the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office at (719) 520-6666 or email
