Human remains discovered last year in the eastern Orange County foothills were identified Thursday as those of a woman who went missing nearly four years ago after leaving a family pool party during an argument with her husband, police said.

Cindy Casteel-Mathieu was 42 at the time of her disappearance. The remains, discovered in September near Santiago Canyon and Silverado Canyon roads, were scattered in the area and not all have been recovered.

Casteel-Mathieu, who worked in Anaheim's public utilities department, was last seen at a birthday party for her grandson in Buena Park on Aug. 14, 2004. Her family and police said that she was arguing with her husband, Donald Mathieu, throughout the day and that both appeared upset when they left.
