Remains found near parkway IDed as missing Georgia woman

By The Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Human remains found near a Savannah parkway have been identified as those of a woman missing for more than a year, police said Thursday.

Savannah police said in a news release that a DNA analysis confirmed the remains are those of Melanie Steele. The 24-year-old woman’s family reported her missing in September 2019.

Her remains were found March 18 off of New Hampstead Parkway — about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from where Steele’s car was discovered soon after she vanished.

Police did not give a cause of death and said they’re still investigating.
