The autopsy on remains discovered during the search for Gabby Petito is scheduled for Tuesday, the coroner told CNN.

Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue said the autopsy was scheduled, and that officials would try to identify the body.

He said officials would use photographs, personal identification, and DNA.

Charles Jones, FBI Denver's supervisory senior resident agent in Wyoming, said authorities need to confirm if the body is Petito's, and also determine a cause of death, CNN reported.

It is not clear when the findings of the autopsy will be made public.

Jones announced on Sunday night that the remains found near Grand Teton National Park match the description of Petito.

Petito was reported missing on September 11.

She was on a cross-country road trip with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, when she disappeared.

Laundrie returned to his family home in Florida on September 1 and police said he refused to speak with investigators. Authorities called him a "person of interest" in her disappearance.

Laundrie's family now say he has been missing since Tuesday.
