KENNESAW, GA (CBS46) -

Investigators may have discovered the body of a missing Iraq veteran in Kennesaw.

Chase Massner was last seen in March 2014. His disappearance led to a series of intensive searches, but no answers.

On Tuesday, a body was found behind the house where cadaver dogs signaled possible human remains about a month ago. It's the same place where they've been searching for Massner.

It was the end of June when we brought you exclusive footage of two cadaver dogs, who indicated possible human remains in the backyard under a pad of concrete under the deck.

CBS46 has been on top of this case for three years, and we've learned that the man who owned the house back in 2014 told police back then that he picked up Massner. He claims Massner was a friend he'd known for a short time, and that back on that day in 2014, he brought Massner back to the home. He says Massner was having marital problems and just wanted to talk. He told CBS46 that Massner spent the night, and the following day, he went missing from his home.

It's important to note that the man who owns the house now didn't own it back in 2014 when Massner went missing.

CBS46 is staying in close contact with police and will bring you any new developments.
