Remains found in northwest Indiana, Michigan City, IN, Police were on the scene of a discovery Friday of what appears to be human remains.

Around 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon, police were called to the area of County Line Road and Chandler Avenue, on the west side of the city, near the Town of Pines.

It was heartbreaking news to the family of missing Candi Brown Morris, who disappeared from Michigan City in August 2012. Search efforts for the missing wife and mother have been focused on the western edge of the city, near the Pines' area, based on cell phone information obtained by authorities. However, no identity has yet been made; and Candi's family and friends continue to await more information.

The missing persons' group Moms on a Mission -- which works hand-in-hand with Candi's family -- has released a statement regarding the discovery:

We have become aware of remains that were located Friday on County line Road. There has been NO identification of the remains at this time. Candi's family and friends would appreciate privacy and patience at this time while they await some information from law enforcement. We will update everyone here when we know more. As usual, I am also asking that we try to keep the rumors to a minimum. We don't want to have anyone needlessly upset by speculation or gossip. Thank you everyone for understanding."

New information obtained this morning indicates an autopsy will be conducted to determine identity.

Candi Sue Brown Morris is 5’4" tall, weighing 130 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. She is also described as having “several tattoos”. Anyone with information regarding Candi’s disappearance is asked to contact Detective Jason Holaway at the Michigan City, IN, Police Department, at (219) 874-3221.
