DNA analysis matched the remains to Partridge. 

“Having a loved one go missing can be very traumatic for a family, and it was very important to investigators that we identified Cheyenne so that she may be brought home to her family and provide them with a sense of closure, ” says Cpl. Kelly Bates, Saskatchewan RCMP Historical Case Unit. 

The RCMP say the cause of her death remains under investigation. 

It's the first time RCMP in Saskatchewan were able to identify remains through the National Missing Persons DNA Program.
