FRANKLIN (CBS) -- The remains found in Franklin on Saturday afternoon have officially been identified as Michael Doherty, a Duke University student missing for over a week.

The Norfolk District Attorney's office announced the medical examiner's results on Monday morning.

Doherty, who had just returned to Franklin for the summer, attended a party last Saturday night and had not been seen since he said he was walking home Sunday morning.
