Dear Readers: A sad bit of local news. I was skimming the San Diego News Network when I came across the report that the remains of a local teen girl who has been missing over one-year have been found in Pala.
Escondido police announced Sunday the discovery of the remains of Amber Dubois in Pala.
The Escondido teen went missing on Feb. 13, 2009 and has been missing since. She was 14 years old at the time.
The Escondido police department said that human skeletal remains found Saturday were positively identified as those of Dubois by the San Diego County medical examiner’s office.
Officials did not give details on the investigation or whether it’s related to the arrest of John Albert Gardner III, who was charged in the death of 17-year-old Chelsea King last week.
The case is still under investigation.
Our prayers and sympathies are with the King and DuBois families.
