COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a 6-year-old South Carolina girl who disappeared earlier in the week after getting off her school bus has been found dead and that a homicide investigation has begun.

Police in Cayce announced at a news conference Thursday that a body of a man also was recently found in the neighborhood where the child, Faye Marie Swetlik, disappeared on Monday.

Authorities didn't give any evidence linking the two deaths, but said there is no danger to the public.

They also announced no arrests have been made in the girl's death.

Cayce is a community near the South Carolina capital city of Columbia.
