WOODRIDGE, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

The skeletal remains that youngsters discovered while walking through a wooded area in the western suburbs last month have been identified as that of a man who went missing in 2007.

About 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, Woodridge police responded to a wooded area in the 7900 block of Lemont Road after two youths out for a walk found what appeared to be skeletal human remains, police said.

Police, working with the DuPage County Coroner, DuPage County Sheriff's Forensic Unit, and Felony Investigative Assistance Team, recovered the remains, which were turned over to the coroner for analysis.

The results, announced Tuesday, showed the remains were those of Anthony Scott Arcaro, who was 37 years old when he was reported missing from Lisle in 2007.

Arcaro had been missing since Feb. 22, 2007. He was last seen leaving his home in the 2700 block of Weeping Willow Drive with a friend in a red pickup, police said at the time. The friend returned home and claimed to have dropped Arcaro off at his own home about 5 p.m. that day. The next day, Arcaro's girlfriend reported him missing.

The cause of death has not been determined and Woodridge police, Lisle police and the coroner's office are investigating his death.

Anyone with information should call the Woodridge police at (630) 719-4764 or send an email to crimetips@vil.woodridge.il.us.
