The remains of a woman who died in an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 in northeast Japan were found 10 years later.
According to the Kyodo agency, skeletal remains were detected on February 17, off the coast of the northeastern state of Miyagi.
As a result of DNA analysis and forensic dentistry analysis, it was determined that the remains belong to Okuyama Natsuo, who disappeared in the March 2011 earthquake.
More than 18,000 people may have died
Okuyama, who was 61 years old in 2011, was caught by an earthquake while going from home to work and the tsunami is thought to have cleared his body.
It is estimated that more than 18 thousand people died in the earthquake and tsunami in the provinces of Miyagi, Fukushima and Iwate in the Tohoku region, which were most affected by the earthquake.
