More than two months after she was last seen with her estranged boyfriend, the body of 25-year-old Weltzin Garcia has been found.
Garcia and Alfonso Hernandez were last seen in early February. The two were reported missing shortly thereafter.
“Garcia and Hernandez were reported missing on Feb. 5, approximately one week after Garcia obtained a protective order against Hernandez, who was wanted on a domestic violence warrant.
“Police found Hernandez's car near White Rock Lake by pinging Garcia's cellphone in the hours after their disappearance was reported.”
The remains of 28-year-old Alfonso Hernandez were discovered less than two weeks later, in a lake northeast of Dallas, Texas.
But investigators were unable to locate Garcia - or her remains - until April tenth.
Fox News is reporting, “The body of Garcia, 26, was found by a kayaker on Mountain Creek Lake, adjacent to her hometown of Grand Prairie.”
No cause of death has been released of either Garcia or Hernandez, although at the time of the discovery of Hernandez' remains, police said there were no signs of visible trauma to his body. Investigations are ongoing.
The couple’s two children - a three-year-old son, and a six-year-old daughter - have been placed in the custody of Garcia’s twin sister, Aritzy Mireles.
Back in February, the sister told the Dallas Morning News that Weltzen had recently moved out of the home she shared with Hernandez and was living with a cousin after a history of domestic disputes with Hernandez.
