Human remains found in the area east of Highway K and Technology Drive in O’Fallon today are believed to be Kelly Steiniger, a missing O’Fallon woman, police said in a press release.

Steiniger, 39, of O’Fallon, was reported missing in early December. She was last seen on December 6 walking to a QuikTrip in the same area where the remains were found.

The O’Fallon Police Department said that the remains were found in thick underbrush near a creek, an area that had been previously searched.

An autopsy has been scheduled, but police say that foul play is not suspected at this time.
