Human remains found in California confirmed as missing Hollywood model-actress

Adea Shabani 25 is seen in

Los Angeles Police Department has reportedly found the body of missing Hollywood actress Adea Shabani in a grave in northern California.

"At this point and time, we believe that those remains are the body of Ms. Adea Shabani", William Hayes, commanding officer of LAPD's Robbery Homicide Division, said at a press conference, reported the NY Daily News. Shabani, who had been studying acting in Los Angeles for less than two years, was reported missing on Feb 25.

After Shabani went missing last month, her family hired a detective and her mother flew in from Macedonia.

Discrepancies in Spotz's alibi raised warning bells but he disappeared before police could track him down for further questioning.

Hayes said the investigators doubt whatever Spotz claimed about the disappearance. LAPD had contacted the office Monday to notify sheriff's officials that they were working an active missing persons case in the area. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning, which will positively identify the remains and provide the cause of death, authorities said.

"We are devastated", said John Jack Rodgers, the Academy's executive director, recalling that she was "growing immensely" in her craft.

Shabani was last seen in Hollywood a month ago.

An autopsy will determine how Shabani died, police said.

PEOPLE confirms that investigators have impounded the Tacoma and a crime scene unit has been combing it for forensic evidence related to the Shabani case.

The California Highway Patrol said the pursuit suspect was possibly tied to a homicide in Los Angeles County, but did not elaborate on the case.

A native of Macedonia, Shabani moved to the US less than two years ago to pursue an acting career. As part of the investigation, detectives could not corroborate details of Spotz's account and continued to look into his story.

Her anxious family flew in from Macedonia to help in the search for her, even hiring a private investigator and offering a £17,729 reward.

When police couldn't find Spotz or his truck, Hayes said, they alerted other law enforcement agencies that they were looking for the vehicle. At some point, information led authorities to the lake at the Woods Wildlife Area in Nicholas, California, but were not successful in finding anything. The suspect was later identified by Riverside County Sheriff's deputies as 33-year-old Christopher Spotz of North Hollywood. Spotz fled, prompting a chase that stretched from Hesperia to Corona, where authorities say Spotz fatally shot himself along the 91 Freeway.
