The dead body of an 11-year-old girl has been found a day after she was reported missing in Alabama.
Amberly Lee Barnett vanished on Friday at about 6pm after last being seen at her aunt's home in Collinsville.
And police are anxious to trace a dark colored SUV that was seen around the time she disappeared.
It has been reported that it actually left the driveway of the victim's aunt's home.
Authorities searched for Amberly overnight and located her body on Saturday at about 6.30am.
As yet the sheriff's office has not revealed her cause of death and refused to answer questions about the case.
A police spokesman from DeKalb County said: "We are diligently, diligently pursuing different avenues,' he said.
"My heart is shattered this day in DeKalb County, Alabama. We will go forward and, God willing, we will have those answers."
Her frantic mom Jonie Barnett posted a frantic message on Facebook after her daughter went missing.
She wrote: "Her phone was left behind and my baby takes it everywhere. Nothing in her phone indicated she was planning to leave!' her mother Jonie wrote.
"Amberly is the type to not do anything that she will get in trouble. She would not have ran away or make plans to go off somewhere. "A green SUV was seen leaving the driveway!"
The pretty blonde haired girl vanished on Friday evening at about 6pm – her body was later found by authorities on Saturday at 6.30am.
The investigation into her death continues.
