Authorities have demolished a barn where volunteers are searching for the body of Jessica Cain

Jessica Cain's accused kidnapper William Reece is back on the property today. We have seen him here over the last few days.

La Marque Police, Texas Rangers and volunteers from Texas Equusearch are going through the area looking for Cain's body. It is believed Reece left the body here nearly 20 years ago. The problem is that area has changed much in that time.

East Orem is now a four-lane road. Detectives have spent more than a week out here and plan to continue at least for now.

The barn sat where you can see an excavator. Now officials are trying to see if any human remains are in that area.
