Searchers looking for a 24-year-old mother of two, who has been missing since the beginning of November, have found human remains near her home community of Sucker River.

RCMP said they have not positively identified the remains, adding that an autopsy is set for Monday to determine how the person died.

The remains were found by searchers looking for Jodi Roberts, who was last seen Nov. 2 and reported missing four days later. RCMP said a number of ground searches, including searches by community members, have been conducted and their investigation has determined that Roberts' disappearance was suspicious.

Sucker River is part of the Lac La Ronge First Nation in Saskatchewan's north.
