A body believed to be that of a missing 17-year-old California girl was recovered Tuesday afternoon, San Diego Sheriff William Gore said.
Gore said the body was found in a shallow grave covered in debris after a finder noticed something that seemed doubtful.
The teen, Chelsea King, moved out Thursday from a wooded park in San Diego County. The body was found in a wooded area near a tributary that leads down to a lake, Gore told. "A positive ID has not been made, but there is a strong likelihood that we have found Chelsea's," Gore at an afternoon news conference.
