WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a woman whose body was found near Walker, in Linn County, was the mother of three girls who were the subjects of an Amber Alert.
The girls were found safe in the Waterloo area about an hour after the alert was issued around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
Authorities say they're looking for a man who may have additional information about the case. They have released his name to the public but no charges have been filed.
The Linn County Sheriff's Office says it's tentatively identified the woman, whose body was found Wednesday morning in the middle of a road. Authorities are waiting on autopsy results. They say the woman's death is suspicious.
