Brendan Beck, is feared to be trapped in the Hotel Montana after it collapsed during the Tuesday earthquake in Port-au-Prince.
"It is bitter-sweet. I am so grateful he was found and heart broken that I have lost my incredible son," Baldwin said in an email to NBCDFW.com. "It has been a 34 day living nightmare. I am so grateful to Col. Cintron and the dedication of all the SAR and Recovery teams for their unselflish giving and continued hard work to find all our loved ones."
A memorial service had previously been planned for Feb. 20 in Beck's home of Jupiter, Fla.
Beck was a civil engineer for a company who was contracted by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to analyze infrastructure in northern Haiti.
Baldwin said Beck was supposed to leave Haiti the day of the earthquake but that her son's connecting flight to a city on the northern part of Haiti was cancelled. That forced Beck and five other colleagues he was traveling with to book hotel rooms to stay the fateful night in Port-au-Price.
