The cold case of the disappearance of Beau Mann has finally been solved.
The tech CEO went missing in 2021 after taking an Uber ride.
This week, his remains were found in a courtyard area near an abandoned building in Santa Monica, reports ABC 7 Los Angeles.
Mann was the founder of a digital health company that went missing in November 2021.
The last time anyone had heard from him, he was taking an Uber ride on November 30. When his body was found, it was located only about a mile from the drop-off from Uber.
His family released a statement on the finding of the remains. It stated, "His identity was confirmed through dental records. At this point, we have no further details on what led to his death.
"Beau was a beautiful soul who spent the better part of his life helping others.
"We miss his infectious smile and positive attitude every day. We know his spirit will live on through his company and passion, Sober Grid, as it continues to help those struggling with the grip of addiction,” reports Fox News.
Mann started Sober Grid in 2015, which served as a conduit for people with addictions to keep in touch and keep tabs on each other. Users could use their real names, but they could also stay anonymous if they wished.
On the day he disappeared, he had stopped at a local 7-Eleven down the street from his office, then he got into the Uber. While in the Uber, he sent out a 9-1-1 text.
The family statement read, "He texted 911 while inside the Uber. He was dropped off in Santa Monica. Despite exhaustive efforts to find him, Beau was never heard from again.”
The Los Angeles County Coroner is now examining the remains in the hopes of finding a cause of death.
