Remains found at Lake Mead not Susana Villalvalzo

LAS VEGAS -- The remains found at Lake Mead National Recreational Area belong to a woman, according to Red Rock Search and Rescue.

However, Red Rock Search and Rescue said the remains are not those of Susana Villalvalzo, 46 of Las Vegas.  

The remains were found in an arroyo on Highway 147 at mile marker 5, according to Metro Police, who's heading up the investigation. 

David Cummings, the commander for Red Rock Search and Rescue said the decomposition of the woman's body does however match the same time period Villalvalzo disappeared.

Susana Villalvalzo was last seen on Nov. 5 at her home on Sahara Ave. and Valley View Drive.  Cummings said the teams traced Villalvalzo's suspected kidnapper, 75-year-old Samuel Teran's final moves before he killed himself earlier this week.

"Because it was one of his favorite places to go and when you look where he committed suicide, North Vegas and Vegas Boulevard, it kind of drew us to that area,” Cummings said.

Cummings said Red Rock Search and Rescue supplies the man-power to cover large areas when Metro can't.

Metro did not release any other details about this case, but homicide detectives are investigating.
