The stepmother of 45-year-old Shana Alison DiMambro, who disappeared from her RV home in Spring Branch July 19, today confirmed that a body discovered Friday in the 200 block of Mitchell Dr. is her stepdaughter’s.
Vickie Dimambro said next-of-kin have been notified.
DiMambro’s body was discovered just yards away from the RV home she shared with her husband Chris Antos.
Comal County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) said DiMambro’s remains were decomposed, but they are certain they are those of the missing woman.
Comal County Justice of the Peace Judge Walker pronounced DiMambro deceased and ordered an autopsy Friday. DiMambro’s body was transported to Travis County for positive identification.
Eric Herr with Search and Support San Antonio, said he and the unidentified owner of a nearby property discovered DiMambro’s remains along a fence line.
He said he suspected that anyone wearing black flip-flops when they went missing, as reported by Antos, probably didn’t stray too far from home. He asked the property owner for permission to search his land at the end of the road next to the trailer park.
“I don’t know why I just had a hunch and unfortunately my hunch just came true,” he said on Facebook.
Herr said DiMambro’s body was discovered in a “weird position.”
“It’s up to the detectives now to figure out what happened,” he said.
Seeger Water owner Donald Seeger Jr., who also searched for the missing woman, said tattoos on the body were identical to those of DiMambro.
“I am heartbroken for the family but I am glad closure can begin,” he said on Facebook.
