The remains of a woman and a dog were found Friday in Riverside County amid the search for a missing retired Army officer from San Diego and her pet terrier, police said. Police determined Jacobson had been murdered based on forensic analysis of her vehicle, according to KFMB.

Jacobson, a 37-year-old Army veteran, has been missing since Labor Day weekend. She texted a friend that night saying she was in the Palm Springs area, and that was the last anyone has heard from her. Eventually, the case was handed over to Ontario police, since she was last seen in the city.

On Sept. 7, her company vehicle was found abandoned in University Heights, about a half-mile from her home.

Her black handbag was found inside, unzipped and with hardly anything in it.

The remains were found near Box Canyon Road about two exits from the rest stop, according to Ontario police Sgt. Jeff Higbee. Police did not release details about what led to their suspicions. After a weekslong investigation, Jacobson's ex-husband, Dalen Larry Ware, 39, was arrested on suspicion of murder on October 13 in Arizona with help from the Phoenix police and the FBI's Violent Crime Task Force. He was later transferred to the San Bernardino County West Valley Detention Center and charged with murder.

Dalen Ware faces murder charges in his ex-wife's death.

The Ontario Police Department (OPD) said information gathered during their investigation led authorities to search a 6 square-mile area in Cactus City.

OPD, SDPD, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and the Riverside County Sheriff's Department assisted in the search.

Soon after she was reported missing, SDPD officers found Jacobson's auto abandoned at 2600 Monroe Avenue in University Heights.
