#BreeannRodrguez: Police have found remains believed to be those of the three year old toddler.
Late Breaking news out of Dunklin county tonight. Police tell us they have found human remains believed to be those of Breeann Rodriguez.

The remains were found around 6:30p.m. this evening by a member of the Missouri Highway Patrol Water patrol searching by boat. The remains were near what police call the number four floodway ditches.

That's the body of water near Hornersville, where divers were searching for her just days ago. It's about eight miles from her Senath, Missouri home, It's also the same area where they found Breeann's bike.

Officials tell us her parents were notified shortly after she was located.

"We appreciate all the help and support from the community in what has been a difficult time for all" said Sheriff Bob Holder.

"We are saddened to confirm our fears but glad we have been able to recover her for her parents," He added.

Breeann Rodriguez has been missing since August 6th.

On Saturday police arrested a neighbor, 43 year-old Shawn Morgan. He made his first court appearance today.

Members of the community gathered outside the courthouse Tuesday morning carrying signs saying "Justice for Breeann."

Morgan did not enter a plea and will be back in court on August 30th.
