SARTELL, Minn. (AP) — The father of a 24-year-old Eden Prairie woman who has been missing since May says police believe remains found in a Stearns County park could be his daughter's.

Wayne Matula told KSTP-TV that police notified his family that a hiker had discovered remains in Mississippi River Park near Sartell Saturday afternoon that may be his daughter Mandy's.

The park had been a focal point of the search for Mancy Matula after she went missing May 1. She was last seen that day leaving her Eden Prairie home with her ex-boyfriend, David Roe.

Roe fatally shot himself in a police department parking lot the next day after he was called in for questioning about Matula's disappearance.
