A fisherman discovered skeletal remains of a foot inside a tennis shoe that washed ashore last month. Investigators said this week that DNA testing matched the remains to 22-year-old Franchesca Alvarado. She disappeared in March 2012 when she didn’t return from a trip to Atlantic City with a friend.

Her family said the hardest part has been trying to explain to Alvarado’s 4-year-old daughter that her mother will never come back.

No charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing. There is a $25,000 reward being offered for information in her death.
