Police believe the search for a missing Dunkirk woman has come to a tragic end.
Authorities said Tuesday that human remains found in a rural area of Jay County on Monday are likely those of Brianna DiBattiste, a 25-year-old Dunkirk woman missing since June 16.
“Investigators have preliminarily identified the body as Ms. DiBattiste,” Jay County Prosecutor Wes Schemenaur said in a statement released early Tuesday evening. “A DNA test will be performed in order to confirm the identity.”
