RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Richmond police say human remains found in March have been identified as a missing Chesterfield woman.

The remains found on March 11 on Rodman Road were identified as Ogechi Sarah Uwasomba based on a DNA analysis, police said. The Chesterfield woman was reported missing by her mother in June 2014. Police don't believe foul play was involved in the death.

Her mother, Catherine Uwasomba, has held on to hope. "It's a struggle. The worst thing. My worst nightmare. I can't even, imagine," Catherine told NBC12 in November 2014.  The family understandably did not want to go on camera Friday when the news came out.  They said they just found out.

The Medical Examiner will work to figure out the exact cause and manner of Uwasomba's death once the autopsy report is complete.

Uwasomba went missing on May 30, 2014. Her mother said she was talking to her daughter in the kitchen half an hour before she got into a dark sedan outside the family's home on Barnwood Drive. She was never heard from after that. Her mother said her daughter suffers from a bipolar disorder and needs medication. 

Uwasomba's case was featured on Crime Solvers and the family even offered an additional $3,000 for information that would help solve this case.
