The discovery of Phylicia Barnes' body ended one mystery and began another for police, who must now determine how the missing North Carolina teen ended up in a river 40 miles north of Baltimore, and identify the man found the same day in the same body of water. Authorities said it could take the medical examiner's office days, weeks or even months to determine how Barnes and the man died. A police spokesman said there are no apparent signs of trauma on either body pulled Wednesday from the Susquehanna River near the Conowingo Dam. "Our hearts are sad, but we stand strong," said Phylicia's father, Russell Barnes, who has led vigils and searches for his daughter since she disappeared Dec. 28 from a Northwest Baltimore apartment while visiting her half sister.

Volunteers trekked through a patch of thick pine trees and along railroad tracks in Northwest Baltimore on Saturday as a light snow fell, searching for any clues in the disappearance of missing teenager Phylicia Simone Barnes. On Saturday morning — 11 days after she went missing — the family and friends of 16-year-old Barnes, along with concerned strangers, searched the grounds surrounding the apartment complex where the honor roll student from North Carolina was last seen. Police say they suspect foul play and the teen was likely abducted, but family members vowed Saturday to find her. Russell Barnes, her father, organized the search that drew about 30 volunteers, including the activist group Guardian Angels in their signature red berets and jackets.

UPDATE: A Baltimore jury has found Michael Maurice Johnson guilty of second-degree murder in the killing Phylicia Barnes, a North Carolina teenager whose body was found in the Susquehanna River in 2011, months after a mysterious disappearance that drew national attention.   Lawyers on both sides   had acknowledged in closing arguments  that the evidence against Johnson was circumstantial. But while defense attorneys described flaws and inconsistencies, prosecutors said the facts pointed to Johnson as the only reasonable suspect.

When Phylicia Barnes' disappearance drew national attention two years ago, it prompted calls for stronger response to reports of missing children - particularly minorities. Some who made those pleas said Wednesday that Michael Maurice Johnson's conviction in Barnes' murder validated their efforts. The case spurred the General Assembly to pass "Phylicia's Law" in 2012, promoting better coordination of law enforcement and search efforts in the crucial first hours after children go missing.

THIRD-GRADERS at Worthington Elementary School met a sled dog and learned about the famed Iditarod race as part of a program called "Sled Dogs on the Run." Wednesday's event began several months of Iditarod-connected instruction. Schoolchildren will chart the course of the 1,000-plus-mile race and follow its progress on the Iditarod's Internet site. Worthington is one of about 600 schools nationwide participating in the program, said Susan Ay, the school's speech pathologist. Schools must submit a plan and have it approved before they can participate.
