It has been confirmed that the human remains found by a group of search volunteers in a forest near Gothenburg is that of 31-year-old Marina Johansson, who has been missing since 2010, news agency TT reports.

The remains were found on Saturday when a volunteer group called "Missing Persons Sweden" organized a search party near the woman’s home in Spekeröd, just north of Gothenburg. The 500-strong group included divers and local hunters and the remains were found in a plastic bag near a lake.

Police found traces of blood in the home of Johansson and her 38-year-old partner shortly after she was reported missing in July 2010. Even though her body had not been found, her partner was charged with murder but was acquitted by both district and appeal courts due to lack of evidence.

Missing Persons Sweden work to trace people who have gone missing from home. 700 people go missing in Sweden every year.

Jerri Kangasniemi, search location coordinator for Missing Persons Sweden told Radio Sweden that noone believed they would find the remains of Marina Johansson.
