    The remains of a Kentucky soldier, who disappeared during World War II, have been sent home.
    WPSD-TV reports the remains of William T. Carneal, which were discovered in Saipan, arrived back in Paducah on Tuesday. He will be interred Friday after a ceremony.


    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.
