ARDEN HEIGHTS, Staten Island (WPIX) -- Human remains found at a Staten Island storage facility are believed to be a missing teacher, a law enforcement source said Thursday.

A law enforcement source tells PIX11 the person found is missing Staten Island teacher Jeanine Cammarata.

The 37-year-old mother of three was last seen Saturday night at her boyfriend's home on on McVeigh Avenue.

Cammarata's estranged husband, Michael Cammarata, has since been taken into police custody on charges of assault and stalking.

At this point, the charges against Michael Cammarata are not directly in relation to her disappearance, police said.

"My greatest fear is I will not be speaking to Jeanine again," Eric Gansberg, her attorney, said Wednesday. "And I fear the worst."

Gansberg was hired by Jeanine Cammarata late last year. She informed her attorney that she left their residence in mid-2017 "due to domestic violence."

NYPD vehicles are at a Staten Island storage facility where a human remains were found on April 4, 2019. There was no legal custody arrangement between Cammarata and her estranged husband, and she was content with having her children live with him in a house they were familiar with, Gansberg said.

She'd missed a divorce and custody hearing on Monday that she had requested. Jeanine Cammarata, a teacher since last October, also has a second job at a Dollar Tree on Victory Boulevard. She has not been at that job, or at her main job teaching first grade P.S. 29, all week.
