Human remains found in Alachua County believed to be missing man

Human remains were found from a marshy area off Interstate 75 near Payne's Prairie, Florida Tuesday morning and authorities believe them to be missing 30-year-old Paul Anthony Marvella.

The area the remains were found is the same area where Marvella was last seen driving his vehicle back in January and the Hernando County Sheriff's Office says they believe the remains belong to him. A positive identification will be made by the medical examiner's office.

The sheriff's office asks on Facebook for you to keep Marvella's family in your thoughts and prayers.

Marvella worked for Alternative Transportation services and was last seen delivering a dead body to Jacksonville back on January 15.

Members of the Hernando County Sheriff's Office worked closely with the Alachua County Sheriff's Office and Florida Highway Patrol troopers.
