BILLINGS, Mont. — Search crews have found the body of a Montana teen who vanished on New Year’s Day, deputies said.
According to USA Today, 16-year-old Selena Not Afraid was found dead near an Interstate 90 rest area Monday morning, weeks after she disappeared while traveling from Billings to Hardin after a New Year's Eve party. Investigators do not suspect foul play, the Big Horn County Sheriff's Office said.
In an FBI notice, authorities said the girl "left a disabled vehicle and walked into a field adjacent to the rest area" about 2 p.m. Jan. 1. She was "not dressed for the weather conditions," authorities said.
Not Afraid's disappearance sparked a multiagency search involving hundreds of people, the Billings Gazette reported.
