Wendy Jackson, Adriaunna's mother lives in Overland Park. "Worst ever feeling. A phone call and your daughter's gone," she said during the intense search for her daughter.
Adriaunna was a 7th grader and the oldest of four children.
Bourne is from Lamar, Mo. He is being held on $2 million bond on charges of first degree murder, child kidnapping, forcible and statutory rape.
