Remains Belong to Broward Woman Missing Since 2010: Report

What to Know

  • Hallandale Beach Police have scheduled a press conference for Thursday morning, but have not released details.

One week after officers found what was believed to be human remains near a canal in Miami Gardens, officials will reportedly confirm they belong to a Hallandale Beach woman who went missing over eight years ago.

An official with the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that dental records show the remains are those of Lynda Meier, who went missing June 4, 2010.

Hallandale Beach Police have scheduled a press conference for Thursday morning, but have not released details or confirmed the paper’s report.

Last week, police and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement searched the area near the 3900 block of Northwest 215th Street – not far from the Opa-locka location where the then 40-year-old’s Cadillac Escalade was found a week after her disappearance.

Two men who were captured on video using Meier’s ATM card at two different Miami banks the same day she disappeared were named persons of interest, but both were questioned and never charged.

No arrests were ever made in the case and Meier was declared legally dead in 2016.
