FREDERICK, Colo. (AP) – Investigators who found the body of a pregnant Colorado woman reported missing this week have discovered what they believe are the bodies of her two young daughters.

Searchers on Thursday afternoon found what appear to be the bodies of 4-year-old Bella Watts and 3-year-old Celeste Watts. The remains of their mother, 34-year-old Shanann Watts, were found earlier on property in northern Colorado owned by Anadarko Petroleum Corp.

The father, 33-year-old Christopher Watts, is being held without bail on suspicion of killing his wife and daughters. He is expected to be formally charged Monday.

Investigators have not said how the three died.
