Chairo Garibay, 20, has been missing since December 11, 2005 on her way to church. According to authorities, the body of a woman who disappeared last month may have been found in Yuba County.
According to Yolo County Sheriff’s Department news release, local residents were driving their truck on a dirt road adjacent to the Western Pacific Railroad tracks north of Plumas-Arboga Road on Monday, when their truck became stuck in the mud. They called friends for assistance. And when their friends arrived, they discovered what they believed to be a human body wrapped in plastic in the remote area.
The witnesses contacted the sheriff’s department, which confirmed the discovery and secured the area until investigators could respond, the release said.
“Upon unwrapping the body, we discovered that it was, in fact, in all likelihood, Cheira Garibay,” said Yuba County Sheriff Virginia Black. “We believe the body has been submerged in water. She was wrapped in a tarp, a plastic tarp, and weighted down with chunks of concrete.”
