July 26 (UPI) -- The final victim of a Florida condominium building collapse has been identified as a woman listed as missing for more than a month since the disaster, her family said Monday.
The victim's identity was confirmed by Florida state Sen. Jason Pizzo, who thanked the Miami Police Department and Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Emma Lew for their work in bringing closure to the woman's family.
Ikey Hedaya told CNN last week that his sister Estelle Hedaya lived in an apartment in the building. She was not among the 97 victims identified -- 96 found in the rubble of Champlain Towers South and one who died after being transported to the hospital.
"The tough part is seeing my parents like this, day after day," he said. "I just want my sister to be at peace and get the honor and respect she deserves."
The Hedaya family lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., where the victim's remains will be flown for a Jewish funeral, CBS Miami reported.
Firefighters and rescue teams searching for victims officially ended their efforts Friday after nearly a month of removing and sifting through about 14,000 tons of debris.
