California (ChattahBox) – Police announced this morning that they had found the remains of 17-year-old Chelsea King.

Registered sex offender John Albert Gardner III, who was formerly convicted of molesting a 13-year-old, has been arrested for her murder.

Police has so far combing the grave site, searching for clues about what might have happened.

Chelsea’s body was found by one of the many searchers who have been going over the San Diego shoreline since her disappearance.

Her parents, who have been an active voice in the investigation, thanks searchers and police at a late night vigil Tuesday.

“One of the nicknames I always used to call my daughter is my angel, and she’ll be my angel forever,” her father, Brent King, said.

Gardner is now suspect in two other cases, including the disappearance of 14-year-old Amber DuBois, and the attack of 23-year-old Candice Moncayo, who fought off her attacker on the same hiking trail.

    That is disgusting that he would do such a terrible thing,
    Chelsea had so much more life to live, she did NOT deserve
    to leave soo early. This is sickening, and not right. I hope that
    man stays in jail for life. May you rest in peace Chelsea King,
    you will forever be missed.
