Apr. 25, 2013 @ 08:12 AM

CHESTER, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia’s medical examiner’s office has identified a body found in the Ohio River as a Chester man missing since November.

State Department of Health and Human Resources spokeswoman Marsha Dadisman says the body of 52-year-old Timothy Ralston was identified through dental records.

The Weirton Daily Times reports the body was found in the river on April 16 about seven miles downstream from a bridge that witnesses say Ralston jumped from on Nov. 20.

Hancock County Sheriff Mike White has said Ralston had been involved in a domestic dispute.
