McALESTER, Oka. (AP) — Authorities say skeletal remains found two years ago near McAlester are those of a McAlester woman who disappeared more than three years ago.

Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris said Tuesday that the remains found in February 2018 have been identified as those of 40-year-old Holly Cantrell. Morris says the case is being investigated as a homicide.

Cantrell was reported missing in January 2017 after leaving her job at McAlester Regional Health Center for lunch. She was last known to be seen about 20 minutes later at a restaurant in McAlester.
