PHOENIX, AZ – The body of a 19-year-old El Cajon woman who was reported missing in Arizona a month ago was found in a rural area outside of Phoenix, authorities said.
Homicide detectives were investigating the disappearance and death of Kiera Bergman, who was last seen Aug. 4, near her home on 51st Avenue and Thunderbird Road in Phoenix, according to the Phoenix Police Department.
Bergman’s body was found around 3 p.m. Monday near state Route 85 at Hazen Road in the community of Buckeye, police said. The community is a roughly 48-mile drive from her home.
A GoFundMe Page was started in August to help pay for Bergman’s family to travel to Arizona to search for her. The account has raised more than $22,000.
