The grim discovery was made just after noon local time yesterday after a massive search involving friends, police and civil protection workers.

Earlier in the day, friends from the Wolverhampton University-trained expat who wrote two books about her experiences in the Caribbean, including her recovery from an almost fatal shooting by a burglar, offered a reward for information that led to her discovery.

Animal lover Lindsay, who worked as a marketing director in the UK for a range of financial service providers before traveling the world as a diving instructor and settling in the Dominican Republic, described herself on social media as a writer, blogger, researcher and translator.

One of the books she wrote after emigrating nearly 20 years ago, an Amazon bestseller called & # 39; What About Your Saucepans & # 39 ;, described how she got away from marriage and a dream lifestyle of expensive vacations and designer cars & # 39; s in Britain to continue its diving. dream.

She also told in the book how she was shot in a bungled robbery in 2006.

She said in an interview last year about her new life in the sun: & I came here for six months and finally stayed.

& # 39; I married a Dominican and I worked as a diving instructor and everything was perfect until one day I was shot in the throat during a burglary in my house.

& # 39; That meant that I had to give up my career dive and start writing another career.

& # 39; My husband then ran to the local mayor and we were involved in all kinds of political corruption and villains.

& # 39; We finally fled for our lives and we now live on a 1500 ft mountain where we keep goats and chickens and dogs and life is very quiet. & # 39;

She added: & # 39; When I was shot in the throat, the bullet went through my lungs and I could not breathe.

& # 39; A big fear was that I would die, which I almost did. Friends brought me to the hospital on the back of a motorcycle. I then have a space for about six hours. & # 39;

Lindsay, whose husband Danilo Feliz has three sons from a previous relationship, told last month on an internet blog how he worked hard after qualifying as a lawyer.

She said: & In many of the cases he is working on, expats are involved, so I find myself working as a paralegal, explaining everything to clients and being a bridge between the two.

She added: “Much of my work involves helping foreign ladies who have cultural problems with their Dominican boyfriends, finances or husbands and I also help them with divorces if things go wrong.

& # 39; I have heard so many sad stories about things not going well in this country and abroad with people trying to deal with difficult situations. & # 39;

In another YouTube interview entitled & # 39; Escape the rat race to pursue your dream & # 39; she revealed: & # 39; In the UK, I earned a quarter of a million dollars a year, maybe half a million in bonuses.

& # 39; I had so much money that I didn't know what to do with it. Cutting my hair every six weeks was like 600 to 700 dollars. They were peanuts.

& # 39; I should have been happy, but when I & # 39; I did not wake up in the morning and the only time I was really happy was when I was diving. & # 39;

Lindsay, presumably in the early sixties and originally from Cambridgeshire, was last seen around 3:30 p.m. on a Tuesday when getting off a bus outside her home.
