Human remains were found in the same park where Keller seemed to be headed. And family and friends have been awaiting identification of those remains.

The office of DeKalb Police Chief Bill Feithen says he'll speak about the case Tuesday. But it didn't provide other details.

Over the weekend, authorities reclassified their search as a death investigation.

According to CBS affiliate WBBM, friends of Keller's describe her as bright, good-humored and talented.

Missing-person posters featuring a photo of a short-haired, smiling Keller are still up around the sprawling DeKalb campus, west of Chicago.
