An 11-year-old girl named Audrii Cunningham went missing in Livingston, Texas, prompted a widespread search.

Her body was found in a river after being missing for five days in Texas.

The girl was discovered in the Trinity River after failing to make it on the school bus in Livingston.

“My heart aches with this news,” Polk County Sheriff Byron Lyons told reporters. “I express with my deepest sympathies and condolences to everyone who knew, who cared for and loved Audrii. We will continue to process the evidence that has been gathered to ensure justice for Audrii.”

District Attorney Shelly Sitton said 42-year-old Don Steven McDougal has been arrested.

He was supposed to be dropping Audrii off at the school bus the morning she disappeared.

“At this time, we believe the appropriate arrest warrant is going to be for capital murder in the death of Audrii Cunningham,” Sitton said.

“I understand that this is a very difficult time for Audrii’s family and for our community.”

“We do believe at his point he was the last person who seen her,” Lyons said about McDougal.
