Authorities have identified an inmate held for three weeks in a Utah jail as a missing New Mexico man. Phillip T. Beavers was arrested July 1 in the Provo Police Department parking garage, about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City. He was ordered held on $1,200 cash bond for three misdemeanor charges of interfering with an investigation, failure to provide information to a police officer and criminal trespass.

The man refused to provide his name to authorities, baffling investigators who have been reaching out to the public and media for help.

On Tuesday afternoon, authorities said the man's brother identified him. Additional details weren't immediately available.
