Skeletal remains found on a Virginia farm may be that of Morgan Harrington, but an official identification has not yet been made.

Harrington’s mother Gil spoke to a local CBS affiliate, saying the remains are “probably” her daughters, and Harrington’s parents were on the scene to assist in identifying the body:

“We don’t think it’s been proved definitively yet, but it’s most likely,” she said. “So, we want to go and be on hand and see if that determination can be made. Or if we can help in making that determination.”

Gil Harrington said she wanted to thank people for all their prayers and the efforts to find Morgan.

“I was hoping we would find her alive, but at least we won’t always be wondering for a lifetime,” she said.

David Bass, owner of Anchorage Farm where the body was located, told press he was checking fences in a cow pasture when he discovered the remains. He initially believed the body to be that of a deer, but contacted police when he realized that it may have belonged to a human.

Morgan Harrington was last seen between 8:30 and 9PM on October 27th, 2009. Harrington attended a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia, but was denied re-entry after leaving during the show. She has not been seen since.

Update: Police say they are “fairly confident” the body is Harrington’s, and the farmer says his first thought upon discovering the body was that the remains belonged to the missing student.
