LANCASTER, Texas – An Amber Alert has been discontinued for a missing 13-year-old girl. 

Police say she was found dead in a Lancaster Home Sunday.

She was last seen in Lancaster, which is just south of Dallas, at about 7 a.m Wednesday.

Randle was identified as one of two people dead inside the house in Dallas' Oak Cliff area, Eric Jackson, special agent in charge of the Dallas FBI, said. He said the investigation was continuing and had no other information about the deaths.

"We didn't have the positive result we were looking for, but being able to let Shavon's family know that we've located her was our goal," Jackson said. "We're going to continue our investigation and anyone we find that were involved in this heinous crime against Shavon, we will bring you to justice and we will hold you accountable."

The area around the small one-story home was cordoned off Sunday morning.

Investigators placed evidence markers around the front yard and people in hazardous materials suits could be seen entering and leaving the home.

Police said a relative told officers she received a call from an unknown man who said the girl was being held against her will and had threatened to harm her.

Authorities believe she was with a man in a white four-door sedan. Authorities said the vehicle may have damage and/or dark colored paint transfer on the rear passenger quarter panel.

Lancaster police officers and FBI agents are investigating the home and have not released any other details.
