FORT MORGAN, Colo. (CBS4)- There will be no other charges filed in the case of Kayla Chadwick who was missing for more than a year before her body was found.

Chadwick, 17, was reported missing on March 27, 2012 after going to her boyfriend’s home that evening. Her remains were located near the intersection of Morgan County Hwy. 52 and Morgan County Road W in late June.

The circumstances surrounding her death remain unclear but authorities believe there is insufficient evidence to proceed on any additional charges.

Chadwick’s boyfriend Ivan Torralba currently faces charges stemming from an indictment issued by the 13th Judicial District Grand Jury for perjury, attempt to influence a public servant and tampering with physical evidence.

He was later charged with violation of bond condition, violation of protection order and possession of marijuana during a search of his home in June.

Torralba is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 26.

Torralba’s mother Lucila Torralba has been charged with perjury and attempt to influence a public servant. She is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 18.

The 13th Judicial District Grand Jury, the 13th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, the Fort Morgan Police Department, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office all played a role in Chadwick’s case and investigation.

They will continue to remain committed to the investigation and will pursue any new leads in the future.
