Authorities in Moreno Valley have seized new evidence from a home about two miles from where the body of abducted teen Norma Lopez was found, reports abc7.

Sheriff's deputies served a search warrant on a home on the 26500 block of Pegasus Way which is occupied by a family of three, including "a father, a mother and their 24-year-old son."

As part of the search, authorities seized "a green Mitsubishi SUV," which may be the vehicle witnesses reported as the green SUV they saw near the area where Lopez was abducted as she walked home from her summer school classes at Moreno Valley High School in July.

Locals in the community say they are eager for the crime to be solved. Lopez's father, who did not know the search was going to take place, "still believes that the murderer is someone who knew his daughter."
