   A body was found Wednesday in the search for a kidnapped 12 year old Missouri girl, although authorities say a positive identification had not been made.

   Adriaunna Horton's father, James Horton, told KMBC-TV that his daughter's body had been found.

   A spokesman for the Missouri State Highway Patrol declined to disclose where the body was found, KMBC reported, but confirmed the search effort for Horton has been suspended.

   Bobby Bourne Jr., 34, of Lamar, Mo., was charged with kidnapping Tuesday in the disappearance of Horton, who was last seen Monday afternoon getting into a vehicle around 5 p.m. in Golden City, Mo.

   James Horton told ABC News affiliate KODE-TV that the suspect was known to his family.

   "He worked for me last summer on a job, a construction job. He was a neighbor. He lived less than a block behind us for a year," Horton said.

   On Tuesday, searchers used horses, all-terrain vehicles, dogs and a patrol helicopter to scour the small town.

   "We are going to exhaust every lead that comes in," said Troop D Public Information Officer Sgt. Jason Pace of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

   Horton was at the park with her sister and friends celebrating the end of her first day of the new school year when witnesses reported seeing her get into an SUV.

   The girl's father said he was told the driver of the SUV was asking children at the park for help.

   "He was whining he couldn't find his daughter. He had a missing child. He asked the girls in the park to help him," Horton said. "My oldest daughter walked up to his vehicle. That's when she was abducted."

   Police said they stopped a similar vehicle 90 minutes later and arrested Bourne, who was driving alone.

   Bourne was being held in the Barton County Jail on a $1 million bond. He had not entered a plea.
