Authorities are trying to get more leads in the slaying of a New Jersey man whose skeletal remains were found in upstate New York in 1984.

 
Officials say 25-year-old Joseph Dziowgo of Bound Brook disappeared on May 10, 1973. Dziowgo was last known staying with a man known as "Bear" at a bungalow behind the former Alibi Bar in Branchburg, N.J.
 
The case remained cold until 2010 when detectives obtained DNA samples from his family. The results yielded a match to skeletal remains that were found in 1984 in Wawarsing, N.Y.
 
The Somerset County Crime Stoppers is offer a $5,000 reward for information regarding his disappearance.
