COLE, Okla. - Authorities think they may have identified the remains of a young woman who was found five years ago in McClain County.

The sketal remains of a young woman were found along a road near Cole in August 2003.The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation created a drawing of the woman, but her identity remained a mystery for five years, said McClain County Sheriff Don Hewett said.

Recent DNA testing has indicated the body may be that of a Lawton teenager, who was reported missing in June 2003. Hewett said.

Authorities aren't releasing the name of the suspected victim because they are searching for next-of-kin.
