NEOSHO (AP) - There's been an arrest in the death of a 9-year-old southwest Missouri girl whose body was found in a cave today after she had been missing for a week. Authorities have arrested two men in connection with death of Rowan Ford, whose body was found this morning in a hillside cave near Powell, about 10 miles south of her hometown of Stella. Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland says one is a 24-year-old male and the other as a man of about the same age. Their identities were not released because charges have not yet been filed.
