It may be the ending everyone dreaded in the search for a missing University of Virginia student.

Police in Charlottesville believe they discovered the remains of Hannah Graham.  Search crews found human remains in an abandoned property in Albemarle County, Virginia.

Police say they need to do several forensic tests to confirm the identity.  But her parents have been notified.

"This investigation is complicated.  It's a complex criminal investigation.  It's unlikely that we'll have any information in the very near future and perhaps in the days to come that we'll be able to share with you," said Timothy Longo of the Charlottesville Police Department.

Police are now calling the case a "death investigation".

The 18-year-old student disappeared last month.  She was last seen on security cameras with a man following her.  That man, Jesse  Matthew, is in custody.
