HOUSTON (AP) - Human remains have been found at a pasture in a rural area of Houston where authorities have been looking for the body of a teenager who disappeared in 1997.

It was not immediately known if the remains are those of 17-year-old Jessica Cain, who vanished after having dinner with friends.

Mirna Torres, an investigator with the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, says the medical examiner’s office will work to identify the bones found at the site. It wasn’t known how long that would take.

For more than three weeks, investigators have been digging in the pasture. They were directed to the location by William Reece, a convicted kidnapper.

Reece is also a person of interest in the 1997 disappearance of a North Texas university student.
