Two people have been arrested in connection with the death of a Cal State Northridge student whose remains were found alongside a freeway in Riverside County one month after he went missing, police said Sunday.

No further information was released. The Los Angeles Police Department planned on holding a press conference Monday.

Abdullah Abdullatif Alkadi, a 23-year-old international student from Saudi Arabia, was last seen on Sept. 17 at his home in Northridge. His remains were found about 11:50 p.m. Thursday alongside the 10 Freeway near the Cook Street overpass in Palm Desert, police said.

Alkadi sold his Audi to a man he met through Craigslist when we went missing, but police said they contacted the buyer and cleared that person from any involvement in the disappearance.

Cellphone records traced him to Beaumont, a city in which he has no contacts, shortly after he disappeared, Alkadi's cousin Allison Alomair told NBC4 last month.
