MONROE TWP. (WWJ/AP) - Skeletal remains found at the bottom of a southeastern Michigan quarry have been identified as those of a 27-year-old woman missing since March.

Dental records helped the medical examiner’s office and a forensic anthropologist identify Jamie Rachelle West, although a cause of death has not yet been determined.

The remains were found Wednesday at least 35 feet from the top of Stoneco Quarry — on South Telegraph Road between Dunbar and Albain roads — in an area where there’s no water, police said. The quarry is in Monroe County’s Monroe Township, about 35 miles southwest of Detroit. Clothing also found at the scene was reportedly similar to what West was wearing at the time of her disappearance.

West was last seen by family members on March 15 after she removed her ankle tether — which she was ordered to wear for a possession of heroin charge — and seemingly disappeared.

An investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact police at 734-242-3500.
