BEXAR COUNTY – Andreen McDonald went missing after last being seen on February 28 and now the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office believes they have possibly found human remains belonging to the woman.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office reported that human remains, including a skull and bones, were discovered in the 600 block of Specht Road at approximately 7:00 a.m.
The scene is still being processed with detectives camping out overnight to be able to search the scene again in Friday morning.
It was said by BCSO in a press conference that the remains possibly belong to Andreen McDonald and were found in the same area that was “ground zero” in the previous search for the missing mother.
The bones were discovered about 20 yards away from the road on a 50-acre privately owned tract of land, according to law enforcement.
“It’s quite possible that these are the remains of Andreen McDonald,” said Sheriff Salazar.
Officials added that the remains had been there for quite some time and were sun bleached so the medical examiner is expected to visit the scene after it is processed Friday.
The scene where the remains were found is in the same area that was searched by mounted patrol officers along with drones on day two, three, and four, March 3-5.
BCSO described the crime scene as a very desolate road and the remains were found behind a fence with a gate.
The property owner’s friend was walking the property when they found the bones which appeared to have been moved around by animals.
Andreen’s husband, Andre McDonald was previously arrested for tampering with evidence and is currently out on bond and on house arrested with an ankle monitor at a private residence.
When Andreen was reported missing on February 28, several hundred volunteers, as well as drones, were searching for her.
BCSO is hopeful that the remains are those of Andreen but are also staying open-minded, knowing they could belong to anyone.
To identify the several scattered bones, detectives will continue to comb through the scene and evidence to learn everything they can.
The identity of the bones might take months to determine, although authorities say they do have Andreen’s dental records.
This is a developing story.
