Family Needs Help Finding Missing Mother
A South Florida family is asking for the public's help in finding a loving mother who has not been seen or heard from since the beginning of the week.
The last time anyone remembers seeing Gloria Madrid Marinckovic, 59, was Monday afternoon at her home in Kendall.
Family members are concerned since all of Marinckovic's belongings including her purse, cell phone and toy poodle were found in her home.
Marinckovic has blue eyes and medium brown hair.
Anyone with information on her is asked to call (305) 799-8558 or Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477).

I find this missing person story so bizarre. I live down here in South Florida and this story gets virtually no local press at all. There have been other missing persons cases recently, which have received press. I heard about this through a friend of friends webpage on facebook. I then looked in the news and I found virtually nothing. Very odd! With her checkbook, etc. at home, it doesn't sound good and there's not a peep from the police trying to get in the media. It seems like the family is the only one trying to get out the information. Sad! Anyone here of antyhing?

Same news information, but the comments are interesting.

FL - Miami, Human remains near zoo - Apr'10 - Gloria Marinckovic
http://www.justnews.com/news/23197341/detail.html Video at link, also.
"Keepers were out here this afternoon about 1:30 and noticed a weird smell. As they were investigating a little further, they noticed what turns out to be human remains scattered around the floor there," Magill said.
"It appears to be an adult female. We do not know what caused her death and we also do not know how long she's been inside this wooded area," said Roy Rutland, of the Miami-Dade Police Department.
Due to the fragile nature of the remains, investigators said they would have to remove the dead woman from the brush carefully.
ETA: I searched and didn't find this posted anywhere, but if there is another thread, please merge them. Thanks.

If there was an odor from the body, then can we assume it is a recent death?"The opinion prevailed among advanced minds that it was time that belief should be replaced increasingly by knowledge; belief that did not itself rest on knowledge was superstition, and as such had to be opposed." - Albert Einstein

If they were doing landscape work and disturbed the brush, would there be a weird odor even if the remains were older?
I hope they can identify her quickly. Poor thing!

I am an acquaintance of a family member and it appears that Gloria Madrid has been found dead. Apparently, there was a body found near the zoo, but due to decomposition and what not, it was not identified until recently. The news is not covering the connection or anything past the body being found, so I assume it's not a homicide?
Here's a link to the female body:
Family member confirmed that body is the same Gloria Madrid Marinckovic. Sad.
