MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Police say human remains found in South Carolina belong to a woman missing for more than six years.

Multiple media outlets report Friday that DNA results confirmed that remains discovered near a dirt road in January are those of Alice Donovan. The remains were sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification in April.

The 44-year-old mother of two was last seen pulling into an Horry County parking lot in November 2002.

One of two men on death row for killing Donovan directed searchers to the remains. Chadrick Fulks has also tried to help locate remains of missing Marshall University student Samantha Burns in southwest West Virginia.

Authorities say Fulks and Brandon Basham killed both women during a two-week crime spree after they escaped from a Kentucky jail.
