MEXICO CITY, July 21 (UPI) -- Mexican authorities have confirmed the remains found on July 11 are those of missing American Harry Devert, who disappeared six months ago in a dangerous region of the state of Michoacan.

DNA tests conducted Thursday confirmed the remains were the missing 32-year-old New Yorker's.

Devert's remains, wrapped in plastic, were found near his green Kawasaki motorcycle along a dirt road leading to La Majahua beach in Union Isidoro Montes de Oca. The bike was buried in a shallow grave.

His family and girlfriend last heard from him on January 25 when he sent a text message that he was being escorted from "an area too dangerous for me to be." He was in Mexico as part of a transcontinental motorcycle expedition after leaving his job as a trader.
