      The RCMP is seeking the public's help after confirming whose human remains were found on a 9.7-hectare farm in the North Okanagan.

      They belong to Traci Genereaux, 18, who went missing in May.

      The Vernon woman is described as 4'11", weighing 95 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

      Her parents, Darcy Genereaux and Laurie Nixon, recently visited an RCMP detachment to provide blood samples for identification purposes.

      The death is described as "suspicious" and nobody has been charged.

      Curtis Wane Sagmoen, whose family owns the property, is in custody in connection with firearms charges, as well as uttering threats and disguising his face with intent to commit an offence. He was born in 1980.

      Last month the RCMP revealed that human remains had been found on the property in the 2200 block of Salmon River Road.

      Four other women have gone missing in the North Okanagan in less than two years. The RCMP has also sought DNA samples in these cases, too.

      On October 19, the Mounties executed a search warrant on the property in the 2200 block of Salmon River Road.

      On October 22, it was revealed that human remains had been found.

      Officers are continuing their extensive search of the farm, which is in the Silver Creek area.

      "This remains a very fluid investigation and we have no timeline as to when we anticipate being finished at the site at this time," the RCMP stated in a news release.
