Man suspected of abducting 2 Iowa girls found dead

Police say a man they believe abducted two girls from a bus stop in central Iowa has been found dead, and one of the girls remains missing.

Authorities say the body of 42-year-old Michael Klunder was found Monday night at a rural property in northeast Dayton. His cause of death has not been released.

Police continue to search Tuesday for 15-year-old Kathlynn Shepard. She and a 12-year-old girl were taken from a Dayton bus stop Monday. Police say they believe Klunder lured the girls into his truck under false pretenses.

The 12-year-old later escaped and was found when she walked out of woods near a farmhouse in Boone County.

Federal, state and local law enforcement as well as volunteers are now searching for the 15-year-old.
