She was last seen getting into an SUV which matched the description of Bourne’s vehicle. Horton’s father first confirmed the news to reporters.

Authorities would not say exactly where the body was discovered, but they did say it was found in a rural area outside of Golden City.

He is being held on a $1 million bond.

“At approximately 7 p.m. [Monday] evening, officers … made contact with the reported vehicle and detained the driver for questioning. As a result of the investigation, charges were filed,” according to Sgt. Jason Pace, of the Missouri State Highway Patrol

In an interview with KY3 News Adriaunna’s father, James Horton of Golden City, said his daughter went to the park to play Monday after she got home from her first day of school.

“She was playing with her sisters and two friends,” Horton said.

“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 told ABC-affiliate KODE. “My oldest daughter walked up to his vehicle — that’s when she was abducted.”
