ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — WFTV has confirmed that the body of Miya Marcano has been found near a troubled condominium complex in Orange County, sheriff John Mina said during a press conference on Saturday.


Forensics investigators have surrounded the Tymber Skan by the Lake condos where the 19-year-old was discovered dead just over a week after her disappearance.

Investigators believe that a maintenance worker at an Orange County complex, the Arden Villas, used a master key fob on Sept. 24 to break into her apartment and abduct her.

That man, Armando Caballero, was found dead on Sept. 27 at a different apartment complex in Seminole County in an apparent suicide. Since then, investigators have been searching across Orange, Seminole and Volusia counties
