Search continues for kidnapped Iowa girl, 15
DAYTON (AP) — Law enforcement officials and volunteers are continuing to search for a 15-year-old Iowa girl who was kidnapped, even though the chances of finding her alive have diminished.
Division of Criminal Investigation agent Bill Kietzman said 10-member teams will search Friday in an expanded area of central Iowa for Kathlynn Shepard.
Police say 42-year-old Michael Klunder convinced Kathlynn and a 12-year-old friend to get into his truck while they were walking home from school. They say he took them to a hog confinement building, where their hands were tied with zip ties. The 12-year-old broke free and ran through the woods to safety. Klunder was found dead hours later after hanging himself at another rural property.
