Broce said a man who was cutting bushes found a bag containing Baldelli’s remains on Aug. 20 and contacted police.
The 42-year-old woman from Laguna Nigel, Calif., arrived in Panama with boyfriend Brian Brimager in September 2011. Her family reported her missing the following January.
Baldelli’s family has said Baldelli, a clothing designer, was frequently out of touch so they did not immediately suspect anything was wrong.

31 Year Old Myranda Dale Southern (Myranda Whisenant) Missing Since 8/19/13 in Greenville County, SC (Update: Body Found in Search, Autopsy – No ID Yet Provided) (Update: Body ID’d as Myranda Southern.. Homicide, Died From Gun Shot Wound)
31 year old Myranda Dale Southern, also known as Myranda Whisenant, has been missing since Monday, August 19, 2013 in Greenville County, South Carolina. Myranda Dale Southern, the mother of two, was last seen around midnight at her job at Charter Communications in Simpsonville. She was supposed to be headed to Zellwood, FL to visit family and pick up her children from their grandmothers house. However, never arrived. Authorities say Myranda may be driving a beige 4-door 2000 Buick LeSabre with South Carolina tag IEP-812. She was last seen wearing a navy blue long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans. Myranda Southern is currently separated form her husband. However, he was present at the vigil and made a statement in her honor.
Missing – Myranda Dale Southern (Myranda Whisenant)
The mother of two young children was last seen around midnight at Charter Communications in Simpsonville where she worked.
She was supposed to be heading to Zellwood, Florida to visit family, however she never showed up.
WSPA-TV was contacted by a Lauren Searcy, a neighbor of Southern’s, on Wednesday, in reference to the disappearance. Searcy lived right next door to Southern and the two women became close by being in such close contact.

Searcy said she was very upset because Southern was acting very out of character leaving Greenville County before she told friends she was leaving. Searcy said the two would sit out on their porches while their children played.
Searcy said Southern had two children, 8 and 10 years old whom she loved very much.
“We haven’t heard from her at all. Monday was her daughters birthday and she is an amazing mother and would have never missed her daughters birthday,” said Searcy.
Searcy said Southern let her children go visit her mother for a week before they were to go back to school on Wednesday. Searcy said Southern missed her children very much and decided to head down early on Monday to get them.
UPDATE I: Some say strange activity on missing woman’s Facebook page.
“Her children are her world, that’s why we fear something is wrong,” said close friend and neighbor Lauren Searcy.
Searcy says there has been strange activity on the missing woman’s Facebook account.
“There’s been some odd messages on Facebook, and no one has spoken to her verbally,” said Searcy. “The way the Facebook messages are worded, we do not believe at all they are her.”
UPDATE II: Body found in search for missing mom.
A body was found on Friday afternoon, not far from where a mother vanished. That mom is central Florida native Myranda Whisenant Southern.
Officials in Laurens County, South Carolina confirmed that the body of a white female was found around 12:30 p.m. on Friday as a man was clearing some brush.
UPDATE III: Autopsy fails to provide ID of body found.
An autopsy performed on Saturday failed to provide an ID of the body found in a pasture on Friday to be that of missing Myranda Whisenant. I do not mean to be graphic, but Myranda Whisenant/Myranda Dale Southern has only been missing since Monday. How could the body be so unidentifiable? If this does turn out to be Myranda, it is obvious that a crime was committed.
An autopsy Saturday on the remains of a woman found in Gray Court failed to identify whether the body is that of a missing woman last seen alive in Simpsonville.
Laurens County Coroner Francis “Nick” Nichols told WYFF that more will have to be done to determine if the woman found in a pasture on Friday is Myranda Whisenant Southern of Taylors, reported missing after last seen alive in Simpsonville on Aug. 19.
“It was inconclusive,” Nichols told WYFF. “We’re now looking at dental records. If we decide to do DNA testing, that could take four or five days.”
A body found in a Laurens County field nearly a week ago has been identified as 31-year-old Myranda Dale Southern, a mother of two and someone whom friends described as “a really devoted mother, a really good friend, a family person.”
Laurens County Coroner Nick Nichols said Southern, whose last known address was in Taylors, died as a result of a gunshot wound to the neck, and he has ruled her death a homicide.

The body, which has yet to be identified, was found at about 1 p.m. in the area where officials were looking for Sandra Coke, who was reported missing since Sunday. Coke went missing after following a tip on her stolen dog.

Child’s Remains at DiMaggio’s Burned Home ID’d as 8 Year Old Ethan Anderson, Declared Deceased … Search Continues for James DiMaggio and Missing 16 Year Old Hannah Anderson
Speculation is over … Ethan Anderson dead, ID’d as second victim in burned out DiMaggio home.
The remains of the second victim at James DiMaggio’s burned down home, previously described as that of a child, have been positively identified as 8 year old Ethan Anderson. The body had been too badly burned for initial identification. It was a DNA analysis of bone marrow that confirmed the ID. It was widely speculated that the unidentified second victim, along with the mother Christina Anderson, in the burned rubble was that of Ethan. Earlier in the investigation the father of the missing children had put forth a plea to James DiMaggio and only referenced to let his daughter Hannah go. It was the opinion of many at that point that 8 year old Ethan might have already been dead. Sadly, he was. Rest in peace Ethan Anderson.
Remains ID’d as Ethan Anderson … RIP
The remains found in the burned-out house of fugitive James DiMaggio are those of 8-year-old Ethan Anderson, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.
The body of Ethan’s mother, Christina Anderson, had been identified earlier as a second victim of the house fire.
There was a likelihood from the beginning that one of the remains found in the house were Ethan, but it took a DNA analysis of bone marrow to confirm it.
The manhunt continues for the double murder and kidnapping suspect James DiMaggio and search for 16 year old Hannah Anderson.

“The top caved in on them,” said Lieutenant Tiffany Peterson, a spokeswoman for the office. Two of the other snowboarders were hit by debris, but they escaped without injury.
