Tragic end to search for missing Mid-Missouri girl A somber day in Mid-Missouri. Recent events gave many high hopes in the search for a missing Jefferson City area girl with recent memories of the Missouri Miracle rescue of Shawn Hornbeck and Ben Ownby and the May rescue of 3-year-old Joshua Childers who wandered in the Missouri Woods for more than 2 days. But today brought no miracle...... only heart wrenching news from Cole County. 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten, who vanished Wednesday night, was found murdered in woods not far from her home. A juvenile "person of interest" is in custody. Cole County Sheriff Greg White says the juvenile and Olten were acquainted. White would not give any details about the person of interest except to say the individual lived in the area west of Jefferson City and was older than Elizabeth.
