Where Was She Found?

On Sunday, the investigation into her disappearance led police to a wooded area of the Harvey Siding Road where a body was discovered by Maine Game Wardens. An autopsy will be performed at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Augusta to determine cause of death and confirm her identity but officials are confident that it's Kimberly. Moss says law enforcement officials will continue to investigate this case at 'several scenes.'

Schnackenberg is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday morning.
