Police in Arizona found what they believe to be the body of a missing kindergarten teacher who vanished shortly after bailing a man out of jail. Cathryn Gorospe, 44, went missing Oct. 6 after she posted bail at a Flagstaff jail for 27-year-old Charlie Malzahn.

Authorities located the body during a search Friday. They believe the body belongs to Gorospe but are awaiting the results of an official autopsy. Investigators had not yet released the cause of death or the exact location where the body was found but said it was not within the city limits of Flagstaff.

“At approximate 5 o’clock today, we found the remains of a person that’s a female that we believe to be Cathryn Gorospe,” said Flagstaff Police Sgt. Cory Runge, according to KPHO-TV.

Malzahn and Gorospe were in a romantic relationship, police confirmed. Gorospe bailed him out of jail at around 10 p.m. Oct. 6, the last time she was ever seen. Her roommate reported her missing Sunday after she did not return home to take care of her dog.

Later that day, police got a call about a carjacking in Tempe with a suspect described as Malzahn. It was then that they located Gorospe’s car stained with blood. Malzahn was arrested Monday for using Gorospe’s credit cards and debit cards to purchase items at a store. He told police he had permission to use them.

After his arrest, he refused to provide any information about the potential whereabouts of Gorospe despite being the last person to see her alive. Malzahn was not initially named a suspect in Gorospe’s disappearance, but police said they now considered him the main suspect.

“We do believe foul play has been afoot,” said Runge. “And Mr. Malzahn is a primary suspect.”

Friends and family gathered Saturday at a park in Phoenix to remember Gorospe.

“She would do anything for anybody,” her friend, Julie Wawrzyk, told KNXV-TV. “She would stop what she was doing just to make your day.

Her family extended their thanks to authorities for their work and to the community for their support.

“This is not the outcome we were hoping for,” her brother, Cory, told the station. “But the important thing is we found my sister. It’s going to bring some closure for us. It’s definitely going to be hard. Just remember my sister for who she was, which was a shining star, a beautiful person that loved everyone and everyone loved her.”
