Remains found in a rural US area are those of British-born University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, officials say.

Ms Graham disappeared on September 13 after a night out with friends.

The remains were found about 12 miles from campus.

The man she was last seen with, 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr, has been charged with abduction with intent to defile her.

The remains were discovered roughly six miles from where the body of 20-year-old Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington was found after she vanished in 2009.

Police have said forensic evidence connects Matthew to Ms Harrington’s killing, which in turn is linked by DNA to a 2005 sexual assault in northern Virginia. Matthew has been charged in that case as well.
