Mystery, but not misery, over for family of missing Modesto woman

Lisa Toledo Valdez disappeared in July 2015, last seen near Dryden Park golf course along the Tuolumne River in Modesto. Her remains were discovered in another river in another county more than two months ago, and DNA confirmed the identity. Her family, suspecting the worst for the past few months, at least knows her fate, which, they say, is better than living with the unknown.
