The case of the missing ashes in Alameda is still a mystery, but the family involved is now whole.
Alameda police announced this week that the box with the remaining ashes of Marvin Hockabout was found on the grounds of the church where they disappeared in early March.
The remains were inside two boxes in a backpack that was taken during a memorial service for Hockabout on March 5 at Christ Episcopal Church in Alameda.
Someone found one of the boxes that week, but the second box was not found until last Friday. It was discovered in some Ivy near the main entrance to the church.
Police returned everything to Hockabout's family. His widow can now continue what she described as a pilgrimage to several places around the world to scatter the remains.
Police have no suspects in the case.
