TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say skeletal remains found in a desert area on the eastern outskirts of the Phoenix area might be those of a missing 19-year-old college student from Tempe.
   
Tempe police say the remains found Aug. 6 in Apache Junction haven't been formally identified but that they have similarities with Adrienne Salinas.
   
Police have searched the area near State Route 88 several times since the initial discovery and plan to continue that work in a larger area on Thursday.
   
Salinas has been missing since early the morning of June 15.
