FBI Special Agent E.K. Wilson reported that the remains of a Red Lake Nation girl were found on the reservation.
He said he was contacted Tuesday night by a Red Lake Public Safety officer and the Red Lake Fire Department.
The remains were sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner and were identified as those of Stacy Hill, a 17-year-old girl who has been missing since Sept. 9.
"The recovery area was in the North Barton housing area just north of Highway 1," Wilson said.
He said the investigation is ongoing and has not been classified as a homicide investigation.
Hill was described in the missing person request for information as "a vulnerable young woman."
Wilson said the FBI is interested in talking to anyone who might have information in any way pertinent to the investigation.
