The body of 22-year-old Jasmine Pace has been found, family members said Thursday.

A section of Suck Creek Road near a boat launch was closed earlier in the day, then re-opened.

Chattanooga Police said, "At 1:30 p.m., the Chattanooga Police Homicide Unit searched the area of the 1000 block of Suck Creek Road.

"Human remains were found in the search. After further investigation, police were able to determine the remains are that of Jasmine Pace."

It comes a day after her boyfriend, 22-year-old Jason Chen, was charged with her murder.

District Attorney Coty Wamp said, "Our hearts are with Jasmine’s family tonight as they deal with unimaginably difficult news. We are grateful that thanks to the hard work of the Chattanooga Police Department she may now be laid to rest surrounded by the friends and family that so deeply loved her.

"The state of Tennessee is focused on prosecuting Jason Chen to the fullest extent of the law. In this case, justice will prevail."
