A positive identification of the body has not been made; however, it is believed it might be Dunne, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. The department is waiting for Los Angeles County officials to identify the body.

Dunne was last seen leaving the parking lot of Ralphs Fresh Fare on Avenida Talega at around 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 12.

This is a developing story.

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story included details pertaining to the investigation that is still ongoing. Out of respect for Dunne’s family, SC Times has removed the information.
