(Newser) – Authorities say a body found in a grave is likely the San Diego County teen who went missing last week. Sheriff William Gore says the body, believed to be that of 17-year-old Chelsea King, was located this afternoon in a shallow grave near a lake north of San Diego.

King disappeared Thursday; John Albert Gardner III, a registered sex offender, was arrested Sunday and remains in custody without bail for investigation of murder and rape. Authorities have said talks with Gardner have been unproductive.
