    Authorities confirmed Tuesday the remains found at the bottom of a Coconut Creek Canal belong to William Naylor, missing since 2005.

    The Broward Medical Examiner's Office used dental records to determine the remains belonged to Naylor, who was reported missing on Feb. 21, 2005.

    Naylor's skeletal remains were discovered Saturday inside a green Ford Thunderbird that was found in a canal near West Copans Road and Hammocks Boulevard in Margate.
