— The remains of a Nash County woman have been found in southeastern Ohio, authorities said Monday.

Nichole Alloway, 20, of Spring Hope, was reported missing to the Portsmouth (Ohio) Police Department on June 10. Human remains were found recently near Otway, which is about 10 miles northwest of Portsmouth, authorities said.

Investigators used dental records to confirm Alloway's identity, authorities said.

Her family said the mother of two went to Ohio after meeting a man online. They said she wasn't happy and wanted to come home.
