A body has been found partially submerged in a fishpond nearby where 13 year old Sarah Michelle Lunde disappeared earlier this week after an unexpcted visit to the family home by a convicted sex offender. David Onstott who was recently released from jail on completion of a 5 and a half year sentence for sexual battery with force, once dated the childs mother and was seen hours after the girls disappearance taking beer from the family's fridge. Onstott has been listed as a person of interest but not a suspect by police investigating the case.
Sarah, who has a history of running away, was last seen on April 9, shortly after she returned home from a church trip. She was reported missing Monday, when her mother learned the teen wasn't at a friend's house.

On Friday, detectives told the searchers to point out any bottles of Budweiser or Bud Light. Sarah's brother said Onstott took a half-empty beer bottle taken from the home by Onstott during an unexpected predawn appearance hours after the girl was last seen.

The fathers of two other girls taken and killed by sex offenders are supporting Sarah's mother. Mark Lumsford who's 9 year old daughter Jessica died after being taken last month and Roy Brown who's daughter was killed by a registered sex offender in 1997 were assisting in the search for the girl.

It is believed many beer bottles have been found and police are hopeful that they will yield DNA evidence which links a suspect to the crime scene.

Onstott is being held in custody on unrelated charges of threatening a person in a bar with a screwdriver.
