Authorities believe that they have uncovered the remains of Aniah Blanchard, the 19-year-old college student who was reported missing late last month.

According to ABC News, investigators with the Auburn Police Department made the discovery at around 10:45 a.m. after getting information “regarding the possible location of a body” in a wooded area in Macon County, Alabama.

Lee County District Attorney said in a statement that investigators “have good reason to believe” that it is Blanchard.

Currently, the remains are being examined to confirm whether it is Blanchard.

So far two people have been charged with first-degree kidnapping in Blanchard’s case.

A witness told police that he saw Ibraheem Yazeed—who was the first to be arrested—allegedly force Blanchard into her vehicle, which was later recovered with the “blood of someone suffering a life-threatening injury” found in the passenger side.

Antwain Fisher, 35, the second suspect who was just arrested on Friday, is accused of “providing transportation to Yazeed and disposing of evidence,” an affidavit notes.
