UPDATE: A preliminary autopsy report found the remains to be those of a woman aged 25-40 years old.
There is almost zero information in that article. No approximate length of time, no clothing or personals mentioned, etc. Nothing.
This is on the way that Bethany Decker would have gone to get to her family's house.
As a local, I can tell you that, unless it is a topic of extremely major proportions, this area has a terrible lack of news coverage. Being half-way between Washington, DC and Richmond, the media outlets mainly cover just to the north of us and just to the south.

Katherine Bryant’s family reported her missing in the summer of 2006. She was 33 years old and last seen in the D.C. area.
On August 16, a truck driver parked his tractor trailer near the northbound 140 exit ramp and found the remains in a wooded area where he was walking, according to Bill Kennedy, public information officer for the Stafford County Sheriff's Office.
Detectives searched missing person reports in the region and used DNA to identify the remains as Bryant, Kennedy said in a press release."
