ELYRIA - After weeks of searching in a wooded area in Elyria, investigators confirm they have found a body near Mussey Avenue. Investigators with the Cleveland Division of the FBI, Middleburg Heights police and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office arrived at the scene, as well as the Lorain County Medical Examiner's Office.
The remains have not been positively identified, but Tierra Bryant's family has been notified. Bryant's great aunt Margaret Johnson was at the scene and tells WTAM's Ken Robinson they holding onto hope. "Until that body is identified, we are hopeful that she (Tierra) is alive" she said. Johnson added that her family also needs closure.
Nineteen year old Bryant was last seen on Bagley Road in Middleburg Heights on March 30, 2015.
On June 20, Rashad Hunt, 39, was arrested in Sacramento, California in Bryant's death. He reportedly was the last person to see Bryant alive.
