DELPHI, Ind. (AP) — A police spokesman says a task force investigating the slayings of two northern Indiana teenage girls didn’t find any solid evidence during the search of a house.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley says investigators could at any time seek more search warrants such as the one that was served at a home outside Delphi Thursday evening.

No arrests have yet been made in the deaths of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams of Delphi. Their bodies were found Tuesday, a day after they went missing from a hiking trail near the rural town about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

A community visitation for the girls is set for 4-8 p.m. Saturday at the Delphi High School gymnasium, with private funeral services scheduled for Sunday.

A task force investigating the slayings of two northern Indiana teenage girls has served a search warrant based on tips it has received.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley says the search warrant was served at a home outside Delphi Thursday evening. He says no arrests were expected, but officers were seen carrying boxes from the home.

Riley says the task force consists of FBI agents, state police and local law enforcement authorities.

The bodies of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams of Delphi were found Tuesday about a quarter-mile from an abandoned railroad bridge that’s part of a trail system about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Their deaths have been ruled a double-homicide.

Officers are still hoping you can help them identify the man captured in the photo below. He was spotted walking near the same area where the girls’ bodies were found.

Riley says a telephone tip line has been established in the case. The number is 844-459-5786. Callers can remain anonymous if they wish.
