Body found in search for Salina woman

MISSING PERSON

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Saline County authorities searching for a missing mother of four say they’ve located a body off Interstate 135 in Salina.

But The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/YIN8Rn ) the sheriff’s department would not say Thursday whether the body was that of 27-year-old Kristin Tyler. More information was expected to be released Friday.

The Salina woman has been missing since April 25. She was thought to be heading to a convenience store when she disappeared.

Earlier Thursday, police announced the arrest of a 24-year-old man described as a “person of interest” in the case. He was taken into custody Wednesday night at a hotel in Abilene and held on an unrelated probation violation.
