SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) _ Springfield police say a 45-year-old man is jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder in the case of a missing 10-year-old girl.

Chief Paul Williams says investigators found ``evidence of foul play'' in the search for Hailey Owens, who was abducted Tuesday evening.

Williams said Wednesday that investigators continue to search for evidence ``related to a potential crime.'' He did not address media reports that the girl's body had been found.

The suspect was arrested inside a vehicle near a Springfield home Tuesday night.

Witnesses told investigators that a man in a gold-colored 2008 Ford Ranger drove down the street several times before approaching Hailey and pulling her into his truck around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Amber Alerts were issued in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.
