Search is at suspect's home for missing Oklahoma girl

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - Authorities using cadaver dogs and ground-penetrating radar are searching for the body of an 8-year-old Oklahoma girl missing since 1997.

The search Thursday is at the Midwest City home of the man arrested after being linked by DNA to the disappearance of Kirsten Hatfield. The girl lived two houses away from the suspect when she disappeared from her home on May 14, 1997.

Fifty-six-year-old Anthony Palma was arrested Monday on first-degree murder and kidnapping complaints after his DNA was recently matched to DNA found at the scene. An affidavit said Palma willingly gave a DNA sample in June to investigators following up on the case and results showed a match of one in 293 sextillion.

Palma remains jailed without bond and court records do not list an attorney for him.
