A family member said in a Facebook post that Long had disappeared that day.

Long was expected to attend a concert at her school, Platte Canyon High School.

Last week, the sheriff’s department said no human remains were found in the home but that changed on Thursday.

A judge issued a gag order which has left the community with questions.

Others are fearful with the cryptic description of the suspect released by authorities.

“With what we have been told about the suspect and not knowing where he is… scares all of us,” said one person who did not want to be identified.
