TRENTON, Ky. (AP) - Police have identified a 9-year-old girl who was found dead in western Kentucky a few hours after she was reported missing.

A Kentucky State Police spokesman Stu Recke says the child has been identified as Amy R. Dye and she died of blunt force trauma.

Recke told The Kentucky New Era that investigation is continuing.

Todd County investigators found Dye's body before dawn Saturday along a road between Trenton and Guthrie.

Police said she had been reported missing late Friday.

The Kentucky New Era reported that the sheriff's department took a man and woman in separate patrol cars from the investigation scene to Trenton City Hall for questioning. Recke said he did not know if they were family members or suspects.
