The skeletal remains of year-old Elizabeth Elena Laguna Salgado were discovered last Friday by a man searching for camping spots in an area popular for hiking, fishing and camping about 15 miles 24 kilometers from where Salgado was last seen in downtown Provo, Utah. Smart was kidnapped from her Salt Lake City bedroom by street preacher Brian David Mitchell in at age 14 and held captive for nine months before she was found.

Mitchell was convicted of kidnapping and raping Smart and sentenced to life in prison. A medical examiner is trying to determine how Salgado died, officials said. Her body was decomposed after being out in the elements for what appears to be several years and she was identified through dental records, said Utah County Sheriff James Tracy.

The man who found her remains is not considered a suspect, officials said. Salgado was last seen on April 16, , as she left a class to walk home in Provo, about 45 miles 72 kilometers south of Salt Lake City.

Salgado was from Chiapas, Mexico, and had moved to Provo about a month before her disappearance to study English shortly after finishing a Mormon mission in Mexico. Her family began a desperate search after losing contact with her. She usually talked with them every day. Her uncle Rosemberg Salgado has described her as an optimistic, spiritual woman.

One uncle, Rosemberg Salgado, had been vocal in pleading for help finding his niece, who he described as an optimistic, spiritual woman. Telephone and text messages left with Rosemberg Salgado by The Associated Press were not immediately returned.
