ME: Body found in Osceola County woods is that of missing Orlando teen, Alexandria Chery

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Medical Examiner's Office has confirmed a body found in Osceola County Friday morning is that of missing Orlando teen Alexandria Chery.

Authorities had searched rural areas of Polk, Osceola and Orange counties on August 1 for the missing 16-year-old girl.

Chery was last seen July 28 when she told her mother she wasn't feeling well and planned to stay inside all day.

Her mother, Rosalie Joseph, called to check on her daughter several times that day, but Alexandria never answered.

When Joseph arrived home that evening, Alexandria was not there and most of her belongings were gone.

Blood was found in several rooms.

Authorities say Joseph's live-in boyfriend Saint Simon, tried to clean up the blood with bleach.  He was arrested and charged with providing false information and destruction of evidence.

According to WFTV, Saint Simon's bond was lowered to $200,000 on Tuesday.  Prosecutors wanted it increased to $500,000.
