The girls' bodies were found three-quarters of a mile from an abandoned railroad bridge where they had been dropped off for a hike on Monday.

German's grandfather, Mike Patty, told WTHR that the family last heard from the pair via Snapchat.

"We started going through all the social media things, looking at Facebook, has she talked to anybody, have the girls been talking with anybody, Snapchatting or whatever the kids do today back and forth," he said. "We really didn't find anything and the last minute, I think we found, going out was at about 2:30 which was a Snapchat of a picture of them out there on this bridge, and that was the last communication we've had."


At this time, police revealed they have hundreds of leads but no suspects.

The teens' cause of death has not yet been released due to the pending investigation.

"It is disturbing. We're going to get to the bottom of this. We're confident of that. . .And bring justice," Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said during a news conference.
