Sheriff’s deputies in rural Nevada County have uncovered a buried body and they believe it could be connected to a missing Los Angeles actress.

The body was discovered off Spenceville Road near Beale Falls, northeast of Beale Air Force Base, according to KTXL.

Nevada County Sheriff’s Deputies kept watch over the remote location where human remains were recently discovered.

In Los Angeles, loved ones of Adea Shabani pray there is no connection.

But as they wait for a positive identification, a trusted source close to the investigation tells KTXL that the remains are possibly of Shabani.

Shabani was last seen in Hollywood a month ago.

A man connected to the missing aspiring actress was found dead after he led police on a chase.

33-year-old Christopher Spotz, a man Shabani was romantically involved with, fatally shot himself after a 70-mile chase in Southern California.
