A severely burned body found in Texas is believed to be a missing 15-year-old girl, authorities said. 

A passerby discovered the body at around 7 a.m. Saturday  morning. Police said Thursday they believe the body belongs to Moriah Gonzales, of Waxahachie, who was reported missing last week, Fox affiliate KDFW-TV reported.   

Police have issued arrest warrants for two people in connection with the girl's death, while they wait for a positive identification to be made by the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office. 

The suspects, Jose Alvarado and Jennifer Puente, were last seen driving a dark colored 1994 Oldsmobile Bravada SUV with the Texas license plate BS6R394.

Both are considered armed and dangerous, according to the station.

Anyone with information about the suspects or the crime is encouraged to call the Ennis Police Department at 972-875-4462.
