Authorities have identified the remains of a woman found in Gulfport this past week. Officials say the woman is Deborah Bernstein who was reported missing in September 2000. Bernstein had died of a drug overdose, according to Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove.

Bernstein's remains were discovered Friday by electrician tracing a circuit in an unattached garage at a house on Mills Avenue in Gulfport.

Mills Avenue is about four blocks west from Memorial Hospital in Gulfport.
