GOLDEN CITY, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a body found in southwest Missouri is that of 12-year-old Adriaunna Horton, who had been missing since Monday.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol announced the identification late Thursday. Adriaunna was last seen when she got into a vehicle in Golden City, where she lived with her father. Her mother lives in Overland Park, Kan.
A man who once worked with the girl's father, 34-year-old Bobby Bourne Jr. of Lamar, has been jailed on charges of kidnapping. He's being held on $1 million bond.
The Joplin Globe reports Bourne is now in the Jasper County jail. Derek Walrod, a captain with the Jasper County Sheriff's Department, says Barton County officials wanted Bourne transferred to a larger, more secure jail.
