California police ID remains of missing Saudi student

LOS ANGELES - Police said on Friday they had identified the remains of a man found alongside a freeway in a Southern California desert city as those of a college student from Saudi Arabia who went missing in September.
Abdullah Abdullatif Alkadi, 23, was last seen at his home in the Los Angeles suburb of Reseda on Sept. 17, the Los Angeles Police Department said. Authorities discovered his body in Palm Desert, roughly 125 miles (200 km) to the southeast, on Thursday.
Further information would not be released until a news conference set for Monday, because the investigation was at a "crucial juncture," police said in a statement.
