Many questions, no answers: What happened to the missing Palm Beach Gardens Lyft driver?

OKEECHOBEE COUNTY, Florida — There are still things we don’t know about a Lyft driver from Palm Beach Gardens who went missing.

If Gary Levin’s body parts were found over the weekend in Okeechobee County, the results of an autopsy could come out as soon as Tuesday.

Sheriff Noel Stephen of Okeechobee County said that the bones belong to a white man.

The body was found 2 miles from where Levin’s phone last rang last week, according to investigators.

Near where the body was found on Saturday, a no trespassing sign was put up on Northeast 40th Avenue, just east of the city limits of Okeechobee.

Stephen said that on Monday, his dive team looked for more proof.

Investigators said that information led them to the body, which was probably not visible from the road. Also, agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement were seen coming and going from the area.

The body was found just a few yards from a canal that goes on for miles. It was taken 30 miles away to Fort Pierce, where the Medical Examiner’s Office for District 19 is.

The cause of death should be known after an autopsy.

We asked the sheriff if he knew when the body would be able to be positively identified. He said he didn’t know, but that he thought it would be soon.
