ORANGE County Sheriff John Mina announced that a body believed to be that of missing 19-year-old college sophomore Miya Marcano was found on Saturday morning.
The body was found in a wooded area at Tymber Skan apartments, 17 miles West of Arden Villas apartments in Orlando, where she lived and worked in the building’s leasing office.
The 19-year-old Valencia College sophomore was last seen at around 5pm on September 18.
Though positive identification has yet to be made, a purse containing Miya’s ID was found near her body.
Speaking to The Sun, Miya’s cousin, Caili Sue, had addressed Miya: “We’re here in large numbers, searching for her everywhere – high, low, and in the bushes.”
Caili Sue said a maintenance worker at Miya’s apartment complex, Armando Manuel Caballero, was “obsessed” and “infatuated” with the teen.
Caballero was “constantly texting her,” Caili Sue reports, despite Miya making clear she wasn’t romantically interested in him.
