(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Summit County Sheriff's office is expected to release the identity of one of two sets of remains found in Weber Canyon last month.

Earlier this week, the sheriff confirmed one of the two sets of bones is one of two hikers missing since last September.

58-year-old Carole Wetherton of Panacea, Florida, and her daughter, 39-year-old Kimberly Beverly of Tucker, Georgia, were reported missing after they failed to make their flights home.

The bones were found June 24th next to a makeshift shelter and just two miles from where an S-U-V rented by the pair was found.

The sheriff says a D-N-A match was made between one of the hikers and one set of bones and he's is expected to release the identity today.

The other set of bones is still undergoing D-N-A testing.
