BENTON COUNTY, Ark. (KNWA) - It's been more than three months since a local mother and her 18-month-old toddler went missing in Siloam Springs.

As of Sunday night, two bodies have been found in the area where they were last seen.

Back in November and December, law enforcement from multiple agencies, including the FBI, searched a wooded area near Lookout Tower Road.

Carol Davidson, 35, and her daughter RoseMarry, were last seen in the area on Saturday, Nov. 12.

In the past 24 hours, two bodies have been found near that same location.

The first was found on Saturday afternoon, and then on Sunday at 2 p.m., the Benton County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) confirmed that a second body had been found.

The BCSO would not comment on the gender and they would not confirm whether they were adult-sized bodies.

At this point, the identities of the bodies is still unclear.

Police are not yet connecting the discovery to Carol and RoseMarry Davidson.

"At this point we are not giving any information or have any information to share," said Sergeant Shannon Jenkins with the BCSO. "This is the area of Carol Davidson and that is bringing a lot of attention to this body that has been found, but at this point there is no identity to the body. So, as far as pinning the body on her, there is no information."

Police say they've concluded their investigation of the area, but they will rejoin together once the autopsies have been complete and the identities have been revealed.

According to the BCSO, the autopsies will take place on Tuesday.
