Remains found in hunt for missing Texas teen 25 years to the day after she disappeared.

Investigators believe they have now cracked the mystery in their search for the missing teenager when they found bone fragments at a house belonging to a suspect. WHARTON, Texas — Authorities near Houston have uncovered the possible remains of a 15-year-old girl who was missing for 25 years, after the family of a suspect in her death came forward with a tip, sheriff’s officials said Wednesday. Although investigators and a forensic anthropologist still need to make a positive identification, Diaz’s devastated family believe it is Rosemary’s remains. The tip led Wharton County deputies to property owned by the suspect’s family in a neighbouring county where the likely remains of Rosemary Diaz were found on Tuesday, county officials said at a news conference. Diaz went missing in 1990 from a general store in Danevang, about 70 miles southwest of Houston, and the property where the remains were found is not far from that unincorporated rural community.

The Wharton County Sheriff’s Office, the Matagorda County Sheriff’s Office, the Texas Rangers and members of the Texas EquuSearch organization assisted in the investigation and search. A member of the family who died months ago has been labeled as a suspect; Grosser said the man has made “partial confessions” to various family members through the years. Shortly after the phone call, a couple came upon the store and found it unattended, with Diaz’s car still in the parking lot and the TV still on behind the counter.

The store didn’t have any security cameras and the case went cold even after Diaz’s case was featured on the television show “America’s Most Wanted,” the Chronicle said. Investigators say the now-deceased suspect was in his early 20s at the time of Diaz’s abduction from Dane’s County on Highway 71store late Saturday, Nov. 24, 1990. They also found a gold amethyst ring with a heart-shaped stone believed to be one that was worn by then 15-year-old high school sophomore on the night of her disappearance. I wouldn’t mind begging for my sister. “We all made a goal two weeks ago,” Miller said. “We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, but we’re going to bring her home by Christmas.
