"It is with extremely heavy hearts that we are announcing that we have found a body that the coroner has identified as Faye Marie Swetlik", Snelgrove said as he fought back tears.
Wednesday morning, Cayce police updated the public with new video showing Faye getting off her school bus Monday afternoon, just minutes before her family said she was last seen.
Bryon Snellgrove, the director of the Cayce Department of Public Safety, said in an update on the case Tuesday that authorities have not ruled out any possibilities in the disappearance.
They are now treating this case as a homicide.
Faye Swetlik, 6, has been missing from her home in sc for three days. No arrests have been made at this time.
Cayce Police also announced at a Thursday news conference that a body of a man was also recently found in Faye Marie Swetlik's neighborhood. That investigation has just begun, he said. "We're asking everybody questions we're not leaving anybody out".
Swetlik was last seen around 3:44 p.m. Monday while playing in her front yard at Londonderry Lane in Cayce just off Highway 302 in the Churchill Heights neighborhood.
Faye's body was found in the area on Thursday. She doesn't walk, she bounces.

Barr told ABC that he hoped the President would react and respect the criticism of his tweets delivered in the interview. Roger Stone (L) with his wife Nydia Stone leaves federal court in Washington on November 15, 2019.
The video also contains new pictures of Faye and the hotline for tips: 803-205-4444. The chief continued by saying that the little girl was loved by everyone who knew her including her teacher and fellow classmates at Springdale Elementary School, the SRO that works there, and her family.
The Department of Public Safety said Thursday morning it's looking to identify the owner of a silver sedan that was seen in Faye's neighborhood, Churchill Heights, before she disappeared.
Faye, who has strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes, was last seen Monday afternoon.
"Keep Faye, keep that name in your social media posts", Antley said.
In all, more than 250 law enforcement officers from different agencies are involved with the search Tuesday, officials said.
The FBI has sent agents to assist in the search, Snellgrove said.
Snellgrove didn't reveal the identity of the male or comment on whether his death was connected to Faye's. Tuesday "Faye loves dresses, fancy shoes, spending time with her family, cats and playing outside".
Faye's grandmother, Ruth Collins, spoke out after a prayer vigil on her granddaughter's disappearance.
