The search for Keylin Yolibeth Chavez-Dominguez, a woman from Maryland who had been missing for nearly a month, has come to a tragic end after authorities found her body in a park.

Montgomery County Police and the Maryland Transportation Authority Police responded on Jan. 28 around 2 p.m to Upper Paint Branch Stream Valley Park for a "suspicious situation," county police said in a press release.

There, a female's body was recovered and taken to the chief medical examiner's office in Baltimore where it was confirmed to be the 20-year-old Rockville woman's remains. Her cause and manner of death are pending the results of an autopsy.

Chavez-Dominguez was last seen by her family and friends on Dec. 30, 2022, around 6 p.m. in her apartment, authorities said. She was reported missing on Jan. 2.

A witness claimed to have seen her leaving the apartment complex with a Hispanic man on New Year's Eve, according to police. She was reportedly wearing a white sweater, tan vest, black leggings, and dark-colored boots.

Authorities said no arrests have been made and they are investigating the death as a homicide.
