Authorities in Mississippi have confirmed that the body found in a rural burned down chicken house is indeed that of a missing Illinois college student, 21-year-old Olamide Adeyooye.
Ola, as her friends call her, had been missing since October 13, 2005.
Officials were waiting for medical and dental records to determine whether the body was Ola's.
They got that information on October 26 bringing their search for Ola to a close.
Ola's case gained attention through an Internet campaign launched by Adeyooye's friends.
Authorities in Mississippi notified investigators in Normal about an unidentified woman's body Monday in response to a nationwide alert seeking Adeyooye and her car. The car, a green 1996 Toyota Corolla with Illinois license LBG927, remains missing.
According to a statement from the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, the body was found Friday morning near Interstate 20 in the central part of the state. Firefighters put out a blaze in the chicken house four days earlier, and workers found the body as they were cleaning up the site.
