A human skull and bones were recently recovered from behind the Putnam Diner in Patterson, a spokesperson with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office confirmed to Hudson Valley Post over the phone. Because the case is still under investigation the spokesperson was unable to provide more information.

Police didn't say if they know of the age or gender of the remains, so it's unclear as of this writing who the remains belong to. However, a missing woman's car was once found parked at the Putnam Diner.

Laelcira DeLima, 53, of Danbury, CT was last seen by her family on Oct. 20, 2017. She left her home driving her red Honda which was found on Nov. 7, 2017, at the Putnam Diner in Patterson, according to the Danbury Police Department.

On Nov. 4, of 2019 the Danbury Police Department announced they are still investigating DeLima's disappearance. In a Facebook post, the Danbury Police Department announced it was " renewing its call for help from the public to find Laelcira DeLima." A photo of DeLima is below.
