SAN MARCOS (KJCE) -- The body of a Kyle man missing since December 28 has been recovered, officials said Monday.

San Marcos Police say a hiker found the body around 2:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon in the 1800 block of River Road, in the Blanco River. Police and EMS crews responded and found the body of 32-year old Omar Maya-Rangel.

Crews were able to positively identify Maya-Rangel by tattoos and identification found in his pocket, officials said. The Travis County Medical Examiner's office will conduct an autopsy later this week.

The Hays County Sheriff's Office was searching for Maya-Rangel, who was last seen on December 28. His vehicle was found on December 31 in Caldwell County just outside San Marcos.

San Marcos officials say the investigation into Maya-Rangel's death is ongoing.
