"My heart goes out to family during this time of uncertainty," Darrell Weaver, Executive Director of Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.

OBN's Human Trafficking Unit investigated the disappearance of Jaray Wilson for 14 months. Information developed from more than 100 interviews in the case led agents to a wooded area two miles north of the Weatherford airport on Monday.

Agents began a search of the area on Tuesday morning and uncovered skeletal remains.

Authorities did not confirm the remains belonged to Wilson, but agents indicated it's likely.

"If we've come this far we obviously have some reliable information," Weaver said the Medical Examiner is now working to identify the remains.

Forensic investigators conducted a search of the wooded area for much of the day. Meanwhile, OBN agents turned their efforts toward 19-year-old Tucker McGee, now a suspect in the murder of Jaray Wilson.

Agents did not reveal where the tip about McGee's involvement came from, but say it led to McGee's arrest and the discovery of the remains.

Court records show McGee was arrested for possession of drugs and paraphernalia one month after his alleged involvement in Wilson's murder.

McGee's Facebook page show he was friends with Jaray, but authorities did not reveal what, if any, interaction the two had before her disappearance.

McGee has been booked in at the Custer County Jail. OBN spokesperson Mark Woodward said "more arrests are possible."

The family of Jaray Wilson are asking for privacy during this difficult time.
