Another man, a 22-year-old whose name also was not released, has been detained in Rapid City, S.D., for questioning.
DiFonzo did not release information regarding where Arnold's body was found, however he said his department had fielded "dozens and dozens" of tips from the public since Arnold disappeared Saturday.
Sidney Public Schools Superintendent Daniel Farr told The Dickinson Press at 10:45 a.m. Friday that Arnold's body had been discovered.
Arnold was last seen alive at 6:30 a.m. Saturday when she left her home for a morning run. The only clue to her disappearance that had been publicly released was that one of her shoes was found along her running route.
Arnold was well known in and had friends and family in the Dickinson area.
