MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Eden Prairie Police have confirmed that human remains found in a central Minnesota park are those of Mandy Matula, who had been missing since May.

A police statement says the department plans to release further details Sunday night.

Earlier Sunday, Matula's brother, Steven, says his family was already certain the remains were those of his 24-year-old sister. He noted that a sports sweater and a class ring with a ruby-colored stone that police found with the remains matched hers.

The remains were found by a hiker in a shallow grave in a park along the Mississippi River north of Sartell on Saturday.

The Eden Prairie woman was last seen leaving her home May 1 with her ex-boyfriend, David Roe, who killed himself the next day.
