PETROLIA, Calif. (AP) — Officials say their search for a man suspected of killing his wife and two young daughters last year has ended with the discovery of skeletal remains on a Northern California riverbank.

Shasta County sheriff's Detective Dave Eoff said dental records confirmed Sunday that the remains belonged to Shane Miller, who had been wanted for questioning since his wife, Sandy, and the couple's 8-year-old and 5-year-old daughters, were shot to death in their home in the rural community of Shingletown in May 2013.

Eoff says an anonymous tip Friday led authorities to the grisly find on the banks of the Mattole River in Petrolia, a community near the coast that's about 200 miles east of Shingletown.

Investigators spent a week searching Petrolia last year after Miller's pickup truck and his dog were found near there after the slayings.
