A second set of human remains found near Grande Prairie last month have been identified as 16-year-old Krystle Ann Julie Knott.
Two sets of human remains were located on the Forestry Trunk Road, 60 kilometres south of Grande Prairie, on May 23rd by campers in the area.
The other set of remains have been identified as 19-year-old Rene Lynn Gunning.
Knott and Gunning were last seen at West Edmonton Mall in Feb. of 2005.
Investigators have determined Gunning and Knott did not know each other before they met at the mall the date they were last seen.
Police also stress the two women were not known to be involved in the sex trade, but because of their plans to hitchhike to either Dawson Creek or Fort St. John, British Columbia, it did put them at risk of becoming the victims of a crime.
Officers are requesting the public's assistance to help in their investigation. The deaths are considered suspicious.
Anyone who may have seen the two women along Highway 16 and Highway 43 between Edmonton and Forestry Trunk Road is asked to call the Project KARE tipline at 1-877-412-5273.
