ST. MARTINS— Police in mid-Missouri say they have recovered the body of a missing 9-year-old girl and have a juvenile in custody.

Cole County Sheriff Greg White told reporters Friday that the juvenile and Elizabeth Olten were acquainted. White would not give any further details, except to say the individual lives in the area west of Jefferson City and was older than Elizabeth.

Elizabeth had last been seen when she started walking home from a neighbor's house on Wednesday.
