    "The sheriff's office contacted area law enforcement agencies asking if they have any missing persons' reports involving a person that fits the description.

    A crime lab was called to the scene. Lariat Loop is closed from the pillars to Buffalo Bill's Museum, according to a tweet by the sheriff's office."
