Two teens who went missing over the weekend in rural Oklahoma have been found dead On Monday afternoon, their bodies were discovered along with their alleged captor, in addition to four others that have not yet been identified.

According to police reports, An Amber Alert was sent out after Ivy Webster, 14, and Brittany Brewer, 16, went missing. They were deemed "at risk" and believed to be with a convicted rapist, 39-year-old Jesse McFadden.

Authorities' worst fears were realized later in the day, with the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office confirming the deaths of the teens, whose bodies were found on a rural property in Oklahoma.

However, it was an even greater discovery, since another of the bodies appeared to be that of Jesse McFadden, 39, designated as the main suspect in the disappearance of the girls, said Okmulgee County Sheriff Eddy Rice,

McFadden was a registered sex offender who was supposed to go on trial Monday, May 1, in Muskogee County.

He was charged in 2017 with using a contraband cell phone in prison to send sexual messages to a teenage girl.

He was in prison at the time after being convicted of rape in 2003 in Pittsburgh County.

Following the find, Rice said she had "no idea" what led to the deaths. She said it was "a tragic day in Okmulgee County."
