— The remains of a Virginia girl who had been missing for four days were found in North Carolina Saturday afternoon.

The remains of 13-year-old Nicole Madison Lovell, who was last seen in Blacksburg, Va. on Wednesday, were located at about 4 p.m. along Route 89 in Surry County. Her remains will be transported to the Office of the Medical Examiner in Roanoke, Va. For autopsy and examination, authorities said.

“We still have a great deal to do as there are multiple interviews to conduct and evidence to be collected and analyzed as we reconstruct the timeline of events leading up to Nicole’s tragic death,” said Blacksburg Police Chief Anthony Wilson.

On Friday night, the search for Lovell led investigators to 18-year-old Virginia Tech student David E. Eisenhauer.

Eisenhauer, a Maryland native who was living in Blacksburg, Va., was charged with one count of felony abduction, and first-degree murder. He was being held without bond at the Montgomery County Jail.

    That was my thought as well; how else would these two have ever known each other? This is why as parents, we need to know what our kids are doing while online. My thoughts and prayers go out to this poor girl's family.

    She was so young. Her face still hadn't even got rid of "baby/kid" look. I believe VA is a active death penalty state. That's the only positive I see out of this. I feel so bad for her family and loved ones.

    The only good news here is, this guy will be tried as an adult.... And go to adult prison... Hope he enjoys the life he's led himself to....
