Authorities late Thursday confirmed the identity of a body located Wednesday in rural Dade County, Mo., as that of missing 12-year-old Adriaunna Horton.
The girl had been missing since Monday after she was seen getting into a vehicle with a man in Golden City, Mo., where she lived with her father. Her mother, Wendi Jackson, lives in Overland Park.
A man who once worked with Adriaunna’s father, 34-year-old Bobby D. Bourne Jr. of Lamar, Mo., was charged in Barton County with kidnapping in the case.
