Following the discovery of possible human remains near Nelson County, Kentucky, authorities have notified the family of missing Bardstown mother of five, Crystal Rogers, according to Louisville ABC affiliate WHAS-TV.

The location where the remains were found is reportedly close to where the 35-year-old was last seen alive in July 2015.

Due to the discovery's "difficult to reach location," the Nelson County Sheriff's Office requested the assistance of the FBI Evidence Response Team on July 24. The potential remains were recovered and sent to the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia for testing, according to a Facebook post by the sheriff's office.

"Out of respect for family members of multiple missing persons in these areas, we will not be commenting on this until we have more information from the lab," read the statement.

A Facebook page dedicated to finding Rogers also released a statement of its own, asking for the public to "please give the family some privacy."

Rogers was reported missing on July 5, 2015 after vanishing from the home she shared with her boyfriend, Brooks Houck. Later that day, Rogers' maroon Chevrolet Impala was found off the Bluegrass Parkway with a flat tire and the keys, her purse, and cell phone still inside it, according to a 2015 report from local newspaper The Kentucky Standard

While Houck has never been charged in connection with the case, he has been named a suspect in her disappearance, reported local newspaper the Nelson County Gazette in 2015.

In a 2015 interview with Nancy Grace, Brooks admitted he and Rogers had a “stressed relationship” at times, but he emphatically denied having anything to do with her disappearance.

"I'm 100 percent, completely innocent in this,” he said. Despite Rogers' family's criticisms that Houck was absent from the search efforts, he claimed he was helping “behind the scenes” and told Grace that a polygraph test he took days after her disappearance was determined to be "inconclusive."

Numerous search warrants have been executed on property owned by various members of the Houck family, and no one has been charged with any crimes related to the case.

Her case remains unsolved to this day, and Rogers is presumed dead by investigators.
