On February 9, a hiker reported to state troopers in Girdwood that he had found a human skull near Indian, Alaska.
Troopers searched the area where the skull was found, and found clothing that belonged to a female.
Members of the Alaska Bureau of Investigation and the state medical examiners office say the remains are presumed to be those of Nichole Millsaps of Wasilla, who was 26 when she disappeared in 2010.
The Medical Examiner took possession of the remains and positive identification is still pending.
Next of Kin have been informed of the discovery. An investigation continues.
