GOLDSBY, Okla. (AP) - A skull found in south-central Oklahoma is that of a teenager who disappeared last year, Oklahoma City police said Friday.

Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said in a news release that a seismography crew working between Goldsby and Washington in McClain County found the skull Thursday afternoon and it was confirmed to be Anne Hill’s. Wardlow said the search continues for more of the girl’s remains.

Hill’s mother reported her as a runaway in April 2014, but the case was transferred to homicide detectives after the Piedmont teen’s car was found abandoned in Edmond and she still could not be located. Hill was 16 when she went missing.

Police arrested two people in October in connection to Hill’s disappearance. One of them, 17-year-old Chadd Phillip Raymond, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in February and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

The other, 18-year-old Chloe Marie Thomas, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. A preliminary hearing for Thomas that was scheduled for Friday was postponed until June 5, according to the Oklahoma County prosecutor’s office.

Darcie Scoon, a private investigator who has been working with Hill’s family, told The Oklahoman that her relatives have asked for privacy to mourn.

“We’ve known for a long time that this needed to happen for them to have closure,” Scoon said.
