Grunwald was reported missing Sunday when he vanished shortly after dropping off his girlfriend. He had reportedly told her he was going to stop and see a friend before returning home. 

Grunwald's vehicle, a Ford Bronco, was found burned on a dirt trail just outside Wasilla the following day.

Hundreds of searchers fanned out across the area in search of the teen, whose remains were discovered outside the town of Palmer on Friday.

The remains have been sent to Anchorage, where the State Medical Examiner will confirm they are Grunwald's.

In a dispatch Saturday, Alaska State Troopers said Erick Almandinger, also 16, has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder and kidnapping in the Grunwald case.
