BRANSON, Mo. (KY3) - Police identified human remains found in a wooded area in Branson in April. They hope to find the woman’s next of kin.

Brown moved to Missouri around 2014. Detectives believe she may have been last seen in 2017.

Branson Police Department detectives, the Taney County Coroner, and the county’s pathologist continue to investigate this case to determine cause of death and to bring closure to Deborah’s family.
