BILLERICA, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have found human remains in the same general area of a river where a car was found that had been driven by a 17-year-old Massachusetts girl who disappeared nearly 40 years ago.
Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said Wednesday that human remains, items of clothing and a purse containing Judith Chartier’s laminated work ID were found in the Concord River in Billerica.
Portions of Chartier’s car were found in the river Tuesday. Ryan says whether the remains are Chartier’s is yet to be determined and it too early to say whether foul play was involved.
Chartier was last seen June 5, 1982.
