RIVERSIDE - Two young men suspected of killing a 16-year-old Moreno Valley girl who went missing a month ago were in custody on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Gary Anthony Shover, 21, and Owen Skyler Shover, 18, both of Hesperia, were arrested Monday night on suspicion of murder in connection with the disappearance of Aranda Briones.

"We can confirm that the individuals were booked for murder, but further details will not be released at this time,'' Riverside County sheriff's spokesman Mike Vasquez told City News Service.

He could not immediately say if the suspects are brothers.

According to jail records, the men were taken into custody about 11:30 p.m. Monday at a residence on Grevillea Street, near Old Ranch Road, in Hesperia.

Sheriff's detectives made the arrests after serving a warrant at the location.

Briones was last seen Jan. 13 in Moreno Valley Community Park at the intersection of Cottonwood Avenue and Frederick Street, where she had been visiting friends.

Her family and friends have been searching for her since, distributing flyers throughout the city bearing her photograph and other information.

According to published reports, one of the suspects may have been in a prior relationship with the girl.
