The remains of a Paducah soldier, who disappeared during World War II, have been sent home.
Carneal's remains were found in 2013 along with dog tags, a high school ring and American coins.
Sandy Hart of the Kentucky Veteran and Patriot Museum in Wickliffe said Carneal enlisted in October 1941. He was reported missing in action in 1944 and declared dead a year later.
His great-niece, Suzanne Roberts, says the family is grateful that the remains were found and returned.
