Police said they do not have any suspects in custody as of Wednesday afternoon, but they do not believe there is a threat to the community.

In a story February 14 about the search for two missing girls, The Associated Press, relying on information from police, incorrectly reported that Liberty German was 13 years old. The two girls were reported missing Monday.

A search was called off Tuesday afternoon, when the bodies were found near Delphi.

Police are not releasing a cause of death, and are not detailing any wounds or injuries the girls may have sustained.

Around 1 p.m. Monday, the teens were dropped off by a family member near the bridge, police said.

State police in Lafayette have released the names of the two bodies found in Carroll County east of Delphi Tuesday.

"We are investigating this as a crime scene", said Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley, according to the Lafayette Journal & Courier.

The girls had reportedly been dropped off at the location to go for a hike.

State police served a search warrant at a home near Delphi Thursday evening at a residence in the 11000 block of Bicycle Bridge Road.

"We're going to get to the bottom of this". 'You can remain anonymous if you request'.

Police shared images of the man, and did not describe him as a suspect.

On Tuesday, German and Williams were found around 12:15 p.m., roughly a quarter-mile from an abandoned railroad bridge, near Delphi.

"I can't tell you how many people took off work, stayed out all night - even people we didn't know - just to help us", he says. He says everyone should just be more aware and contact police if they notice anything or anyone out of the ordinary.

We have a very good community and they are very strong. However, Riley noted that in he and Leazenby, who have worked at their respective agencies since 1986, have never seen an investigation this large.
