CACTUS CITY, CA (KMIR/CNN) - Police believe they have found the remains of a missing female military vet in California.

Retired Army Capt. Julia Jacobson and her dog went missing in September. Investigators later concluded that foul play was involved.

And her ex-husband, Dalen Ware, was arrested on suspicion of murder in Arizona last month. Police say information from him led them to a discovery in Cactus City, CA, on Friday.

"We used a San Bernardino County sheriff cadaver dog known as Ellie that came out to the area and found a shallow grave. Within the grave there were some remnants of an adult female and a dog,” said Cpl. Fred Alvarez of the Ontario Police Department. 

An autopsy still needs to confirm that the remains are that of Jacobson. Ware is held on $1 million bail. He is due in court next month.
