ANNA, Texas -- Could this be the final chapter of a murder mystery?

We are waiting to learn more about the discovery of human remains in Collin County.

Around 10 a.m. Wednesday, construction workers removing brush in the 1800 block of Taylor Boulevard found the remains and called Anna police.

"The remains were found just off a city right-of-way for the sewer and water line, kind of back over in the bush," said Anna police spokesman Sgt. Chad Butler.

Police and Collin County deputies alerted detectives in Plano who are still trying to solve the disappearance of Christina Morris. The Fort Worth woman was 23 years old when last seen at a parking garage at a Plano shopping center on August 30, 2014.

Police had previously searched the same area in Anna for the woman's body.

"There has been some searched up here for some missing people that were presumed to maybe be in this area," Butler said. "I know that the Plano Police Department has been up here and they have worked with us in looking in different areas."

Enrique Arochi was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of kidnapping Morris. The woman's DNA was found in the trunk of his car, proving to be a key piece of evidence during his trial.

On Facebook, Morris' family said it has been contacted by authorities about Wednesday's development.

The Collin County Medical Examiner's office will attempt to determine the identity of the remains.

The family of Christina Morris has continued to organize teams of volunteers searching for clues about her disappearance. The next one was scheduled for Saturday morning at Allen High School.

There is a $30,000 reward for information about Morris' disappearance.
