SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia State Police say they have found four bodies in a wooded area and believe they are those of a missing man, his girlfriend and his two young children.
Police said in a news release Saturday evening that the bodies were found in Nicholas County about a mile from where the man's missing 2003 Chevy Venture van was discovered Friday night. Police suspected foul play based on the vehicle's condition.

Police have identified James Roy Belknap as a suspect. His whereabouts were not known Saturday night.
