WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — Human remains found last week belong to an 18-year-old woman who was reported missing in October, authorities said.

The body was identified as Hannia “Paulina” Mosqueda Rodriguez of Waterville, the Chelan County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday. The circumstances surrounding her death are suspicious, according to the sheriff's office.

Her body was found in a ravine outside Wenatchee. A group was walking in the area when one of their dogs discovered part of the remains and they called authorities.

Her death is being investigated by Chelan County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, and Wenatchee Police Department.

She was originally reported missing to Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in October 2019.
