The Latest: Bodies of Missing Colorado Family Found on Oil Property

COLORADO–¬†Authorities say bodies believed to be a pregnant woman and her two young children were found on the property of one of Colorado’s largest oil and gas drillers where her husband used to work.

John Camper, director of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, told reporters Thursday that investigators have found Shanann Watts’ body and were trying to recover what they believe are the bodies of 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste from Anadarko Petroleum Corp. property.

Chris Watts has been arrested in the disappearance of his family. His paystubs show he was working for Anadarko in 2015.

Company spokeswoman Jennifer Brice said he’s no longer employed there. She declined to provide any other information, citing the active investigation.

She says the company is heartbroken and is supporting investigators.
