King parents console family of other dead teen

ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) - The parents of Chelsea King are consoling the parents of another teen found dead in San Diego County.

The remains of 14-year-old Amber Dubois were found Saturday, four days after the presumed body of the 17-year-old King were discovered in a shallow grave.

King's parents issued a statement Monday saying they've spoken with Amber's family and share their "indescribable grief."

Amber vanished last year while walking to Escondido High School. On Monday, the school brought in extra counselors to help students cope with news that her bones had been found.

King vanished last month after running in a wilderness park about 10 miles away from where Amber disappeared.

John Albert Gardner III is charged with murdering King and is being investigated for any links to Amber's death.
