Investigators believe they have discovered the remains of Letisha Marie Faust, a Patrick County woman missing since December.
The body was found about 10:25 a.m. Sunday by a team searching a ravine in Endicott area of Franklin County, according to Franklin County Sheriff's Office Lt. Steve McGuire. The remains were about 350 meters from where Faust's car was found in December, McGuire said.
"We cannot say with certainty, but we believe we have found Ms. Faust," he said.
The remains were sent to the medical examiner's office in Roanoke for identification and, hopefully, to determine cause of death, he added.
There was no evidence to indicate foul play, McGuire said.
