Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials with the FBI say the remains believed to be those of a missing Indiana woman have been located in Tennessee.

This is according to a release from FBI spokesperson Amanda Warford Videll.

Officials say the remains, believed to be of 44-year-old Rachael Madison, were found in a remote area off I-40, near Knoxville, Tennessee on Friday evening.

Police have arrested her estranged husband, 58-year-old Jarvis Madison, who was wanted in connection with her disappearance. According to a news release, members of the U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force arrested Jarvis Madison on Friday morning in Louisville.

He was apprehended around 8:30 a.m. Friday on Hurstbourne Parkway near Bunsen Way.

Rachael Madison was staying with family in Florida, after leaving Indiana to distance herself from her estranged husband.

A Volusia County Sheriff's incident report says Rachael Madison had not been seen since leaving her aunt's home in Ormond-by-the-Sea, Florida on Sunday afternoon.

According to Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull, Rachael Madison filed a police report on Nov. 14 after she said she was held against her will by Jarvis Madison. According to Mull, the two had been living at a hotel in Louisville.

Jarvis Madison is being held at the Clark County Jail. He is charged with criminal confinement.

The FBI says evidence collected at the site will be processed to positively identify the remains as those of Rachael Madison.
