LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock police who were searching for missing teenager Elizabeth Ennen, 15, found a body along County Road 1700 near Shallowater.  The discovery was at 5:30 PM Monday.

Police say they cannot comment on whether or not the body is Elizabeth until the Medical Examiner makes a positive identification.  A Medical Examiner's investigator was on scene Monday night.  Windy conditions were said to make the work more difficult.

Police Captain Greg Stevens said police contacted the Ennen family after the discovery of the body. 

Stevens said police were not yet concluding that it was Elizabeth, "however, we do not have any other outstanding missing person reports that significantly match the description of the body that we found."

Police were also back on the scene in the 5600 block of Elm Monday night, after having done a search at that location Sunday.  Police have not said how that location fits in with the body that was discovered early Monday evening.

Police also said Monday night that more court records would be filed Tuesday in the Ennen case but did not give further details.  Humberto Salinas, 45, remained locked up in the Lubbock County Jail where he has been since Saturday when he charged with kidnapping Elizabeth.

Court records first thing Monday morning revealed that surveillance video portrays Salinas taking Elizabeth against her will on January 5th at the Carriage House Hotel.
