The search began Wednesday near Guelph, Ontario, 50 miles northeast of Victoria Stafford's hometown of Woodstock, where police announced a man and woman had been arrested for her disappearance and death, the Toronto Star reported.
Ontario Provincial Police homicide Detective-Inspector Bill Renton told a news conference very little about the case and wouldn't comment on whether there was a sexual component to the death, the Toronto Sun reported.
Michael Rafferty, 28, and Terri-Lynne McClintic, 18, were jailed Wednesday pending a May 28 video hearing, police said.
The girl known as Tori was last seen on a security camera video April 8 leaving school with a woman wearing a white coat. Police said the woman arrested knew the girl's mother, but didn't elaborate on the relationship, the Sun said.
