    The discovery was made by the SAER special alpine rescue and speleological team.
    Landini disappeared on the afternoon of May 15 2012 after spending the morning at the firing range.
    At the time she was living in the local town of Fiorano with her partner, the then director of the range.
    He car was found locked near the range with her personal effects inside including a wallet and two mobile phones, one of them unknown to her family. (ANSA).
