Friends and family gather together to say final goodbyes to Delphi teens

A tip line set up by investigators in the murder of two in teens who disappeared while hiking is filling up with calls from across the country after a man photographed on a nature trail was named a primary suspect in the killings, police said.

Police previously considered the man in photos a person of interest, but after reviewing evidence, they named him a prime suspect in the killings of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams.

The bodies of Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, were found in a wooded area east of Delphi, Indiana, on Valentine's Day.

"He's not just someone we want to talk to; we consider him a suspect in these murders", Sgt.

Police have not revealed who the man is and continue to look for him. The teens had been reported missing the previous day by family members.

Authorities with the Carroll County Sheriff's Office in Delphi, Ind., released this photo of a man they'd like to speak to in the case of two teens who were killed.

Police said callers may remain anonymous.

He said the photo appears to depict a white male wearing blue jeans, a blue coat/jacket and a hoodie.

Their deaths were ruled a double homicide, but police didn't say how the teens died.

Law enforcement officers obtained a search warrant for a home in Delphi Thursday night, but they found nothing of value that could pertain to the investigation, state police said.

Police have not revealed the cause or manner of death.

On Saturday, a large crowd filled Delphi Community High School for a memorial honoring the two girls.

Private family services for Libby were held at Delphi United Methodist Church on Sunday, Feb. 19 starting at 2 p.m.
