A pregnant Louisiana woman, who went missing in January, has died and her body is dumped at an undisclosed location, her family said Tuesday.

Skye Angers' mother confirmed news about the death of her daughter and her unborn baby in a Facebook post Tuesday night.

"It has been confirmed that my daughter, Skye and her unborn baby are dead. Her body was dumped. We are still looking for her. Please pray for their souls," Traci Angers wrote on her Facebook page.

After Skye was reported missing on Jan. 9, the Lafayette Police Department began searching for the 30-year-old. She was seven months pregnant when she disappeared. Skye was last seen on Jan. 4.

Skye's brother, Alex, also shared an emotional Facebook post Tuesday, remembering his sister.

"As of today, we are sad to say that my sister, Skye, and the baby she carried have died. I don't really know what to say or how to process the things I know...but I will say that the life she lived was not an easy one and was brought to an end due to her struggle with addiction. No memorial or funeral has been decided because we are still unsure of where Skye physically is. Thank you to the friends and family that reached out, shared our flyers and made an effort search for her and comfort me and my family," he wrote.

The Lafayette Police Department has not released an official statement about the woman's death. It is not clear how the family got the information.

Before her disappearance, Skye had been homeless for "quite some time," Senior Cpl. Bridgette Dugas told the Advocate.

"We just need to confirm she's OK," Dugas said in February. "She doesn't have to go back to the person that reported her or anything like that."

Skye's family had appealed to anyone with any information about her disappearance to contact the Lafayette Police Department.
