The skeletal remains of a missing Georgia woman have been found in Tennessee

Skeletal remains found near a Volkswagen factory in Tennessee were identified as those of a missing 20-year-old Georgia woman.

Maury-Ange Faith Martinez was reported missing in Gwinnett County, Georgia, on August 28, 2023, according to a news release from the Cobb County Police Department. No details about the circumstances of her disappearance were shared, other than it was believed Martinez disappeared from unincorporated Cobb County.

The skeletal remains were found on January 5, 2024, police said. The remains were found in a rural area near a Volkswagen assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, police said. The facility is located approximately 130 miles south of Nashville.

An investigation into Martinez’s disappearance is ongoing. Police have asked anyone with information about her case to come forward.

Martinez’s mother, Anita Darling, told a local news station that her daughter loved “fashion, color and photography” and “making people feel good.” She said she was on her way to pick up her daughter when she disappeared and the family is still hoping for answers.

“I know something happened to her,” Darling said. “Her sisters deserve to know and I deserve to know. Come on and say something.”
