Kaplan, of Solon, has been missing since his boat was found capsized near the amusement park last October.

Two boys walking along a breakwall found human remains. They told their father, who contacted authorities.
The remains were examined by the Lucas County Coroner's Office, who identified the body as Kaplan's.
