Devastating ending to search in St. Martins, Missouri

Less than 48 hours after nine-year old Elizabeth Olten went missing the Cole County Sheriff confirms she was murdered.

Sheriff Greg White told us shortly before noon Friday he got a hand-written note (from where or whom he wouldn't say) that led them to a "person of interest."

They got to the person of interest, a juvenile (wouldn't say age or gender) who's older than Elizabeth and that child led authorities to her body in a dense, wooded area not too far off the trail they'd been searching.

That young person of interest obviously remains in custody facing charges in Elizabeth Olten's death.
