After that, Elizabeth seemed to vanished into thin air. She never made it home and failed to meet her uncle for a grocery shopping trip later that evening. She was reported missing and intense search efforts began.
Nothing surfaced. Even investigations by the FBI and Interpol produced no trace of her.
Now, three years later, Elizabeth’s body has been found in Hobble Creek Canyon in Springville, Utah. No additional details about the discovery have been made, though the case is being treated as a homicide. Officials from local and national law enforcement plan to hold a press conference Thursday morning.
