EFFORTS TO IDENTIFY the human remains found in an isolated area of the Wicklow Mountains near Kippure yesterday continue today.

Gardaí have not confirmed if the remains are those of a man or a woman.

The body was discovered during the search for missing teenager Marioara Rostas. RTÉ reports that the 18-year-old was last seen stepping into a car in Dublin city centre four years ago.

A preliminary examination of the body was carried out at the scene by the deputy state pathologist before the remains were removed to Tallaght Hospital for a post-mortem examination last night.
