With the recent discovery, authorities are now searching for two people; one of whom is a 91-year-old woman from Superior.

Edna 'Nadine' Turbull's family spoke with CBS4's Marissa Armas about their concerns and their efforts to find her.

"Our thought right now is to just try to find any information that can give us a glimmer of hope," said Joseph Henry Turnbull, Nadine's grandson. "There's a loving lady out there who wants to be back with her family and we all miss her so very much."
