Police search two homes for evidence in Danielle Locklear disappearance


ABC11 has learned investigators executed not one, but two searches Friday in connection with her disappearance.

Chopper 11 HD was over the scene of a home and lot along N.C Highway 210 North, where one warrant was carried out.

Authorities now say a home off of Deep Creek Road in Fayetteville was also searched Friday.

Hope Mills police told ABC11 two people have been interviewed. He says they are not considered "persons of interest" right now, but that status could change quickly based on the evidence investigators are now sifting through.

Search warrants were executed at the home off of Deep Creek Road and another one on Highway 210 near the Sampson County line, where police say investigators took various items for evidence.

Police were searching both of the homes in connection to Locklear's disappearance. The 15 year old has not been seen or heard from since March 11 when she left her grandfather's home saying she was walking to a friend's home. She never made it there.

Wednesday, the body of a young woman was found floating in the South River. Locklear's family told ABC11 that Hope Mills police suspect the body may be the teens.

An autopsy is being done right now at the medical examiner's office. Police say they could have a positive ID by Monday.
