My question about Amber Alerts couldn't have come on a worse case. This guy, who lived with the girl's legal guardian, killed himself, authorities said. The girl, Reachelle Smith, known as "Peanut", hasn't been found:
MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Authorities searched a wildlife refuge Wednesday for a missing 3-year-old girl after the body of the man who authorities suspect took her was found following an apparent suicide.
Leigh Cowen, 22, was found Tuesday inside a van on a gravel road at the Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge, authorities said. Cowen appeared to have killed himself by carbon monoxide poisoning.
There was no trace of Reachelle Smith, who was last seen the night of May 16 when she was put to bed in her home.
