Human remains found Monday in Crown Point, Indiana, have been identified as a woman who has been missing since last month.

The Lake County coroner’s office was called at 4:17 p.m. for reports of remains found in a pond near the I-65 interchange at 109th Street in Crown Point, according to the Lake County coroner’s office and Crown Point police.

The remains were “preliminarily identified as Najah Ferrell,” a woman who had been missing since last month from Avon, Indiana, according to a statement posted to Twitter Tuesday by Avon police.

Police and the Lake County coroner were able to identify a tattoo on the body’s foot that read “Najah,” Crown point police said in a statement. Confirmation of her identity is awaiting a DNA test, police said.

Ferrell was last seen about 3 a.m. March 15 at her Avon home, police said in a missing person alert.
