PELHAM - A Pelham mom has returned from Mexico with the remains of her son, whose disappearance had sparked a wide search effort.

Ann Devert made her way to Mexico to recover her son Harry Devert's remains. Devert, who considered himself an adventurer and lover of life, took a solo trip that was slated to end at the World Cup in Brazil. However, his remains along with his motorcycle were discovered six months after he went missing.

Devert says her son's body was discovered with six bags of cocaine and marijuana. She says that she is being told that what happened to her son is a way of someone sending a message to another person and has nothing to do with her son.

DNA from a rare cigarette that he smoked confirmed his identity. Devert had her son cremated and brought back home. A celebration of his life is being planned.
