The Hillsborough and Polk County Sheriff’s Offices have identified a lady who went missing in 2021.

On May 21, 2021, Kelly Vazquez went missing.

Years later, on September 25, 2023, Polk deputies discovered human remains. Earlier this week, Vazquez’s remains were positively identified, and her family was informed.

After years of committed investigation, we bring closure to a chapter of uncertainty that has haunted this community since 2021,” the sheriff, Chad Chronister, said. “Through collaborative efforts, we have located the remains of Kelly Vasquez, and we hope that in this discovery, we’ve given her family a measure of closure amidst their profound grief.”

There were no further details revealed.

This is a continuing investigation.
