Authorities are reporting they found two bodies believed to be two missing 13-year-old girls on a riverbank. The bodies were discovered just hours after the girls posted a final photo online while hiking in Indiana.
Note the bodies have not yet been officially confirmed as Abigail Williams and Liberty German.
However, friends have been posting their condolences on Williams’ mother’s Facebook page and police have “scaled back” the search for the two girls.
It seems the corpses were discovered less than a mile away from the Monon High Bridge, where the girls were dropped off by family members at 1 pm on Monday and were supposed to be picked up later that afternoon.
The girls’ cell phones were turned off or the batteries died.
German’s grandfather Mike Patty noted: “The cellphone has been pinging around town – and here there is a cellphone tower – but the ping was last noted around five to six hours ago. And they say the phone is now dead.’”
The Monon High bridge where the final picture of Abigail Williams was taken by Liberty German, just a few hours before the pair were reported missing at 5.30 pm.
Although they said foul play is suspected, law enforcement have released no details on how the victims died. Police also wouldn’t comment on the extent of their injuries.
At a press conference, the police spokesperson also would not comment if there were any suspects or persons of interest at this point.
German’s photo of Williams on Snapchat at 2.07pm is the last documentation of the girls.
Assistant Delphi Fire Chief Curtis Borden noted in an interview with local media that the girls were discovered this morning, but that it was “not good.”
Williams and German were supposed to be picked up where they were dropped off a few hours later but never showed up.
Police have reported that family members dropped the girls off at the bridge, but it is not clear if it was a parent of one of the girls, or a sibling.
