Kenai police may have found the remains of a family that has been missing from the area for 10 months.
Police were called Saturday evening after a person driving down a trail on the west side of Kenai found clothing and human remains, according to Sunday media release.
Rebecca Adams, her two daughters Jaracca and Michelle Hundley and boyfriend Brandon Jividen have been missing since May 2014. The family dog, “Sparks” is also missing.
Several law enforcement agencies, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Alaska State Troopers and Fish and Game launched an extensive ground search and aerial search of the area around the Inlet Woods Subdivision in northern Kenai where the family lived.
The remains were found near Borgen Avenue and Alpine Drive, according to the media release. Search teams had previously canvassed the area near Borgen Avenue. The area where the remains were found is less than five miles from the family’s apartment on Chugach Avenue.
Both of the family vehicles were at the home and Kenai police said in June of 2014 that they were focusing their search on the immediate area around the couple’s apartment.
Items found with the remains appear to match those that have been reported as missing from the family’s home, though an FBI team is enroute to the area from Anchorage to help Kenai Police with a scene investigation, according to the release. Kenai Police will hold a media briefing at noon on Monday at Kenai City Hall in the council chambers, no information will be released until that briefing, according to the release.
