They say human remains were found in a rural area outside Yorkton on Thursday, and a forensic autopsy will be done to see if they belong to the missing 25-year-old.

Police say Taiya Alice Hudy, who is 19, was arrested earlier this week in relation to Focht's disappearance.

The Yorkton woman has made her first appearance in provincial court on a charge of second-degree murder and is to appear again next Thursday.

The RCMP say Focht’s family has been updated on the investigation.
