Child Abducted Missouri-27 [Duplicate]

Springfield police and the FBI continue to process the scene in Springfield, Mo., after Craig Michael Wood was arrested at this location on Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014. Wood has been jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder in the abduction and death of Owens, police said Wednesday. A body believed to be that of Hailey Owens was found Wednesday at the home owned by Wood, Police Chief Paul Williams said at a news conference. Official confirmation won't occur until after an autopsy, but the chief said police "have a high degree of confidence" in the preliminary identification. Police say Wood, 45, is jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder but formal charges have not been filed. The Greene County prosecutor is reviewing the case.
