Authorities believe they found body of missing Calif. teen

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Authorities say they believe a body found in a grave is a San Diego County teen who went missing last week.

Sheriff William Gore says the body was located Tuesday afternoon in a shallow grave near a lake. Gore says it is believed to be that of 17-year-old Chelsea King, who disappeared Thursday.

John Albert Gardner III remains in custody without bail for investigation of murder and rape. Authorities have said talks with Gardner have been unproductive.

Thousands of authorities and volunteers have searched for King since she disappeared after going to a wooded park.
