Search for missing teen in remote area ends

(AP) -

The search for a missing teenager has ended in a remote Northern California area after investigators found no sign of the girl.
   The Solano County Sheriff's Office said it has no further plans to look for 15-year-old Pearl Pinson in the Willow Creek area of Sonoma Coast State Park following two days of searching.
   The office said in a statement that investigators continue to follow up on leads in the case and still hope to find and bring her home.
   Authorities have been frantically looking for Pinson since Wednesday, when she was last seen being dragged across a freeway overpass by an armed acquaintance in Vallejo.
   The suspect in her disappearance, 19-year-old Fernando Castro, was killed about 300 miles away on Thursday after his car was spotted on a freeway and he attempted to flee.
