Police find a body suspected to be missing from a college student

The body found in a wooded area near an apartment in Orlando is that of 19-year-old college student Miya Marcano, who died more than a week ago, an Orange County sheriff said Saturday. A medical examiner has not yet confirmed the identity.

After days of searching, teams found the body around 10:45 a.m. Saturday morning near Tymber Skan homes, Orange County Sheriff John W. Mina said at a Saturday news conference.

“We are sure to be identified,” Mina said. A purse with Marcano’s face was found near the body and detectives informed Marcano’s family of the discovery this morning, he said.
