Authorities have identified human remains found just outside of Hastings as that of a wanted Wichita man.

KSNB reports that the body found around noon Monday was that of 58-year-old Ricky Ghan. Ghan's remains were found by a groundskeeper who was mowing at the Motorsport Park Hastings.

Authorities say Ghan was last seen in Hastings on Oct. 14.

Officials say an autopsy did not indicate foul play.

The Wichita/Sedgwick County Crime Stoppers website says Ghan was wanted for failure to comply with the offender registration statute. He was convicted of aggravated assault and battery in 2016. 

The conviction stemmed from a shooting in rural Valley Center in 2015. Authorities said Ghan shot a man during an argument. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
