She is one of a series of women that went out for a drink and some fun and never returned home. Remember Jennifer Moore, she was under age and also partying at a club in Chelsea and Imette St. Guillen who was abducted from a bar in Soho. Here is one post in a series I wrote on Laura Garza. This post praises The New York Daily News in December of 2009 for reminding readers she was still missing and keeping the memory alive of this beautiful 24 year old woman with the million dollar smile.

NEW YORK (1010 WINS/AP) -- A body found in Pennsylvania is that of a Brooklyn woman who disappeared after leaving a Chelsea nightclub in 2008, according to police.

Middletown police said Monday that a DNA analysis has confirmed the identity of Laura Garza. They said her body was found on April 11 in Mount Cobb, Pa., several miles outside Scranton.

Garza, 25, was last seen leaving club Marquee with registered sex offender Michael Mele, and was with Mele in Newburgh, NY during the early morning hours of Dec. 3 and was never seen again.

Mele, 24, was the focus of the investigation into Garza's disappearance but was never charged. In the weeks after Garza vanished, police searched Mele's home and car looking for evidence.

Mele, who is a registered Level 1 sex offender and has repeatedly been investigated for alleged sex crimes in the past, is currently serving time in prison for failing to report a change of address.

He is considered a suspect in the disappearance of Garza, and at the time she was reported missing, was driving a 2005 Silver Infiniti SUV.

Anyone who may have seen or had contact with Mele in or around Scranton, PA is asked to contact New York State Police at 845 344-5300 or Pennsylvania State Police at 570 963-3156.
