OSLO, Norway -- Norwegian police say they have found the body of 16-year-old girl who went missing a month ago and arrested two men suspected of killing her.

The search for Sigrid Schjetne had been making headlines in Norway since she disappeared on Aug. 5 on her way home from a friend's house in Oslo.

Police confirmed Tuesday that a body found in a forest outside the capital a day earlier was that of Schjetne. They did not release the cause of death.

Police said two men aged 37 and 64, who were not named, were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Norwegian broadcaster NRK said the suspects rejected the allegations.
