RCMP are investigating the discovery of human remains near Nordegg, Alta. 

A body was found close to the location where a car belonging to Edmonton scientist Anina Hundsdoerfer was found in March.

The 32-year-old has been missing for more than eight weeks. She hasn't been heard from since heading to work in downtown Edmonton.

Days later her blue Toyota Echo was found on the side of Highway 734 near Nordegg. 

Friends and police have searched extensively for Hundsdoerfer since her disappearance.
