ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - The FBI and local law enforcement agencies discovered a body Thursday as they continued their search for Tierra Bryant.

"The remains we found are human," said Lorain County Coroner Stephen B. Evans, M.D.

Bryant's aunt, Margaret Johnson, told Cleveland 19 that while police have discovered a body, the identity is still unknown.

Officials have been focusing on the wooded area along Mussey Avenue for about a month.

Bryant has been missing from Middleburg Heights since March 2015.

On June 20, Rashad Hunt, the man last seen with Bryant, was arrested in Sacramento, CA.

Hunt was charged with murder before Bryant's body was found.

He was eventually brought back to Elyria and remains in jail on a $1 million bond.
