Police say they want to contact the man regarding what he might have seen.

Search parties scowered the area Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, and the search ended early Tuesday afternoon when the two bodies were found about three-quarters of a mile from where the girls were last seen, police said.

The bodies of the two teens were found Tuesday in a wooded area about 50 feet from the banks of Deer Creek, 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

The girls were identified on Wednesday, but authorities are not yet releasing the cause or manner of their deaths.

Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said authorities do not yet have a suspect or suspects in the girls' deaths.

As of Tuesday, authorities had not called off the search, but according to Sergeant Kim Riley with Indiana State Police during a Tuesday press conference, the search had been "scaled back", RTV6 reported.
