Nine-year-old Krystal Tobias and eight-year-old Laura Hobbs were found dead Monday in a heavily wooded area not far from their homes. They had disappeared after taking a bike ride Sunday.
Hobbs' grandfather, Arthur Hollabaugh, says he and his son-in-law were out searching for the girls. Hollabaugh says they found his granddaughter's bike and he stopped to call police.
He says that's when the girl's father found the bodies a short distance away and started screaming.
Lake County Coroner Richard Keller says it appears the girls were killed where their bodies were found and that neither had been bound or sexually assaulted.
