DENWOOD, Ark-  The body of a missing seven-year-old Gilmore girl has been found.

Authorities told the family of Patricia Ann Miles that her body was found off Arkansas 77 this evening, not far from where her bicycle was recovered in Mississippi County four days ago.A pastor for the family told a crowd gathered at the search site to pray for the family.Patricia was last seen sunday morning, riding her pink bicycle to the local grocery store.

A family friend was arrested on a kidnapping charge and is being held on a one (m) million dollar bond in the Crittenden County Jail in Marion.Jo Ann Buchanan, who occasionally babysat the girl, has refused to cooperate with authorities. Investigators have not offered a motive for the kidnapping and Buchanan's family members have insisted on her innocence.

More than 100 police and volunteers combed farmland, fields and ditches, using search dogs and a helicopter, since Patricia disappeared. The search extended across three counties in northeast Arkansas and, at one point, investigators expressed confidence that Patricia would be found alive.

A few hours ago, the Arkansas State Police called off the alert for Patricia, and an ambulance and coroner were called to the search site.
