TEXAS CITY, TEXAS (CNN) – Search teams looking for a missing 16-year-old girl in Texas City have discovered a body.

Kirsten Fritch hasn’t been seen since her mother and sister were found shot to death in their Baytown home Tuesday.

Police arrested Fritch’s 21-year-old boyfriend, Jesse Dobbs, in a Texas City bar Tuesday night. That’s around where Equusearch crews were looking for clues.

The body has not been positively identified, but authorities on scene say it matches Fritch’s description. Investigators say Dobbs has not been cooperating.

Polk County court records show Dobbs was sentenced to 30 days in jail earlier this year, for assaulting the mother of his two young children.
