Foul play suspected as bodies of IN girls discovered

Two bodies found in northern in are those of 13-year-old girls who went missing while hiking and their deaths are being investigated as homicides, State Police Sgt. Kim Riley said on Wednesday.

Delphi Police Chief Steve Mullins said the discovery of the bodies alongside the search for the girls had shocked the people living around the place.

The two school friends were last seen on Monday afternoon after they went for a hike along the Delphi Historic Trail in Carroll County, Indiana - just a few miles from home.

The bridge is something of a local beauty spot and is where the final picture of Abigail Williams was taken by Liberty German, hours before they were reported missing at 5.30pm.

While the victims were not identified as the missing teens, authorities did say the search effort for the girls had been "significantly scaled back".

Riley declined to disclose who found the bodies.

Thiam also stated: "2016 was the first full year of implementing our new strategy and it was a challenging and busy 12 months". The bank today posted a loss of $2.4 billion (£1.9 billion) for 2016, worse than bank-watchers had expected.

Kim Riley told a news conference Tuesday both the bodies were found along Deer Creek about one mile east of Delphi, Indiana.

They were supposed to be picked up there that day, but they never showed up.

Investigators didn't confirm if the bodies found on Tuesday were those of the missing teens, saying only that they believe foul play was suspected.

"I think people need to be cautious and careful", Riley said.

He would not comment on any injuries the bodies appear to have suffered. "And they say the phone is now dead".

During the hike, Liberty posted a photo to Snapchat of Abigail walking on the bridge alone. "We suspect foul play". When they didn't meet up with relatives on Monday evening, several law enforcement agencies and volunteers scoured the area for clues.
