EDGERTON, Mo. (AP) -- A truck linked to two missing Missouri woman has been found parked along a gravel road.

The Kansas City Star reported that authorities are looking for 19-year-old Britny Haarup and 22-year-old Ashley Key. The women disappeared Friday from a home in the western Missouri town of Edgerton, leaving Haarup's two young children alone.

After the truck was found around 11 a.m. Saturday, authorities spent several hours searching the surrounding fields. Capt. Joseph King of the Platte County Sheriff's Office says the truck has been taken to the Kansas City crime laboratory.

King says authorities still don't know if foul play is involved. But he adds that it's hard to fathom that the women would have left the truck on a dusty country road and walked away.
