Police in Fairfax County, VA have found the remains of a female, believed to be a teenage girl who went missing early Sunday morning.

17-year-old Nabra and her friends had left an overnight event at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, also known as the ADAMS Mosque, to go to a nearby shopping centre, and were walking back when they got into an altercation with a motorist, the Washington Post reported.

The youths rushed back to the mosque only to realize that Nabra hadn’t made it back, and she was eventually reported missing.

Around 3 p.m., Fairfax County Police found the remains of a female, believed to be Nabra, in a nearby pond, NBC Washington reported. The identity of the victim is expected to be confirmed later Sunday.

Police tweeted that they had taken a 22-year-old man into custody and charged him with murder.
