Friends have released this picture of Nabra Hussein
Police in the US state of Virginia have found the remains believed to be of a 17-year-old Muslim girl who was assaulted near a mosque before disappearing.
The teenager, identified as Nabra Hussein, was walking with friends when they got into a dispute with a driver in Herndon, police said.
The Washington Post reported that a group of four or five teenagers including Nabra had visited a fast-food restaurant to have a late-night meal - Muslims are currently observing the holy month of Ramadan, when they fast from dawn to sunset.
The All Dulles Area Muslim Society (Adams), a local community centre , said that its members came across the teenagers and directed them to their building.
Nabra's mother, Sawsan Gazzar, told the Washington Post: "I think it had to do with the way she was dressed and the fact that she's Muslim."
