In the US, the body of a six-year-old girl who went missing after a school drop off was found yesterday.

Authorities confirmed Faye Marie Swetlik was found dead and the body of an adult male has also been found in the neighbourhood during the course of the investigation.

It remains unclear what the link is between the two deaths.

Faye's family alerted authorities after she went missing on Monday afternoon in South Carolina, US.

A Cayce Department of Public Safety spokesperson told a press conference that Faye's body had been found and identified by a coroner.

He said her death was being treated as a homicide but no arrests have been made yet.
