Search for missing teen continues today

DES MOINES (AP) — The search for a missing 15-year-old Iowa girl abducted Monday after getting off her school bus was continuing this morning near Dayton in northern Iowa.

A news release from the Iowa Department of Public Safety says the search is focusing on four areas, all within 20 miles of Dayton.

Searchers will focus on the area around the bus stop where Kathlynn Shepard and a 12-year-old girl were abducted, the area in rural Pilot Mound, Iowa, where the 12-year-old girl escaped and an area near Dayton where the body of 42-year-old suspect Michael Klunder was found Monday night. Searchers will also search the area near Klunder’s Stratford home.

More than 300 people searched for Shepard on Tuesday. Authorities say more volunteers are not needed Wednesday, but could be later.
