(GREAT BEND, Kan.) — A body was found late Tuesday afternoon a few miles outside the town where police have been searching for 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt.
Vehicles from the sheriff's office, Great Bend Police and the Kansas Highway Patrol are at a construction site southwest of Great Bend.
The Attorney General's office confirms the site where the body was found is at the corner of K-56 and SW 56th Avenue. (see related photo)
The press is being kept at a distance, but Cliff says he can see police tape. Police have not officially confirmed this is where the body was found.
An autopsy on the body is scheduled for Wednesday to make a positive ID and determine the cause of death.
Investigators say the body was unidentifiable when it was found.
Great Bend Police Chief Dean Akings tells Eyewitness News investigators expect to conduct several interviews throughout the day Wednesday. Though the body found in rural Barton County has not been positively identified, Chief Akings acknowledged late Tuesday that law enforcement was "focusing in a different direction than searching for (DeBolt)."
