The body was discovered Friday morning and taken to the state medical examiner's office in Augusta, according to the county sheriff's office.

Westra's husband, Jay Westra, posted "My heart is crushed today" to his Facebook page on Friday after the remains were found.

On Wednesday, Capt. Scott Stewart of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said officials received credible information that Kristin Westra was possibly seen on a road not far from the family's home.
