Adrianna Horton of Golden City disappeared on Monday afternoon from Hazel's Park, where she was playing with friends near her home after the first day of the new school year. A man from Lamar is charged with kidnapping her by luring her into his vehicle to have her help him look for his daughter, whom Adrianna knew.

James Horton told reporters about the discovery of Adrianna's body about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. At a news conference at 4:30, Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Mike Watson said it would take up to 24 hours to positively identify the body. Watson said, however, the search for Adrianna's body was suspended after the body was found.

Watson wouldn't say exactly where the body was found except that it was in a rural area outside Golden City. Watson wouldn't say whether Adrianna's family had seen the body, or where the body was.

More than 250 volunteers and employees of about 15 public service agencies looked for Adrianna on Monday evening, all day Tuesday, and Wednesday. They rode on horseback and four-wheelers, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol used dive teams and a helicopter.

Bobby D. Bourne Jr., 34, was charged on Tuesday for kidnapping the girl on Monday. He's in the Barton County jail in lieu of a $1 million bond. Watson and Sheriff Mitch Shaw wouldn't speculate on whether Bourne will now face a murder charge.

Officers arrested Bourne on Monday evening about 90 minutes after Adrianna's friends said Bourne drove Adrianna away from the park. The friends said Adrianna left with Bourne because Bourne said he needed her help to find his daughter, with whom Adrianna had played in the past. Horton's father says Bourne once worked for him.

At the news conference on Wednesday afternoon, Watson said investigators would pursue charges against other people if they get leads indicating others were involved. The Highway Patrol and the Barton County Sheriff's Department are looking for tips from the public that would help them continue the investigation.
