DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - The south Alabama search for the body of a missing Florida teenager is on hold.

Investigators spent days last week scouring this area of Pike County, near the Coffee County line.

They used a tractor, cadaver dogs, and ground penetrating radar -- but found nothing. Sheriff Russell Thomas tells news4, the suspected murderer, Jacobee Flowers, even showed searchers via zoom where he says he buried 17-year-old Morgan Martin.

Thomas says Flower is familiar with the area... And that could impact the investigation.
