Officials in Panama say they've identified the remains of a woman with local ties who went missing there two years ago.
Yvonne Baldelli was last seen in Panama with her boyfriend, Brian Brimager, back in November of 2011 after the couple moved there.
Baldelli's family reported her missing the following January. The family spoke with News10NBC on Thursday about the closure this gives them.
Yvonne's stepmother, Lilian Faust says, "Now at least we can give her a decent burial and at least they can't say there's no body, there's no proof of death. So, I think those two things will help us be able to get justice for Yvonne."
Brimmager was indicted by a federal grand jury in June on ten counts of obstructing justice in the investigation. If convicted he could face 205 years in prison.
