More than 1,000 families are still waiting for their loved ones' remains to be positively identified from the September 11 terror attack on the World Trade Center.

Before this latest victim, the last time a new identification was made was in March 2015.

On Monday, almost 16 years later, the New York City Medical Examiner's Office confirmed one more victim.

The family of the man have requested that they keep his name private and out of the public, a NY medical examiner's office said yesterday.

His distinguishing proof was affirmed through DNA retesting.

Officials remain committed to using DNA testing to identify any of the remains that had been located.

During that time, DNA technology has advanced alongside the multi-million dollar effort to try and connect 21,900 found pieces of remains to the lives they represent. This was due to the effects of the heat, bacteria and chemicals such as jet fuel - which made it all that more hard to identify victims.

In 2013, authorities sifted through truckloads of debris unearthed by construction crews working on the rebuilding. Conceivable stays of more than 20 casualties were recuperated.

More than 2,750 people were killed when two passenger jets destroyed the Twin Towers, the symbol of New York's financial wealth and confidence.

No full bodies were discovered after the attack, according to The Journal.
