- The remains of Diego Barría were found inside a shark captured Sunday by two fishermen in Chubut, Argentina
- The 32-year-old had been missing since February 18 after he went out for a ride in his ATV
- The vehicle was found February 20 near a beach, but there were no signs of his body
The remains of a married father-of-three who was reported missing in Argentina have been found inside a shark that was caught by fishermen.
Diego Barría vanished February 18 after he went out for a ride on his all-terrain vehicle in the southern province of Chubut.
The 32-year-old’s wrecked ATV was found by a search team at a beach near Rocas Coloradas on February 20. They also located Barría’s helmet, which was dented and broken near the chin area.
On Sunday, two fishermen reeled in three school sharks around 8:30 am near where Barría’s ATV was located and made the gruesome discovery while they were cleaning one of the sharks.

‘I was so unlucky that I found it myself,’ one of the fishermen said in an audio clip of a conversation that was obtained by Argentine newspaper Diario Jornada. ‘I went fishing and I open the shark’s belly and I found a forearm with a tattoo.’
Barría’s family was able to confirm that it was him because of the pink, green and red tattoo that had the name, ‘Josefina,’ inscribed.
Barría was last seen February 18 at 10:30 pm after he went out for a ride to the countryside.
He is said to have greeted three fishermen friends and another person, who was the last to see him alive.
Authorities are investigating if a second vehicle was involved in an accident with Diego Barría’s ATV

Civil Protection undersecretary José Mazeei said that investigators have been looking into the strange disappearance.
Mazeei indicated they have two hypotheses. One points to Barría being injured in an accident and the other that he was lying on unconscious on the beach before the tides pushed his body out the sea.
Authorities have also been looking into whether another vehicle was involved in the accident.
Comodoro Rivadavia police chief, Cristian Ansaldo, told local media outlets that DNA test would be performed to confirm that it is Barría.
Barría’s heartbroken wife, Virginia Brugger, took to Instagram to share an image of them smiling together on Sunday.
‘My heart went with you! I love you forever,’ she wrote.
