- The woman at the center of a massive manhunt for allegedly making threats against schools in the Denver metro area was found dead, the Clear Creek County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday morning.

Sol Pais, who the Federal Bureau of Investigation said is infatuated with the 1999 Columbine massacre, was found in the woods near the Echo Lake Lodge at the base of Mount Evans Road in Clear Creek County.

The April 20, 1999, shootings at Columbine High School left 12 students and a teacher dead - killings that sparked changes to school safety protocols around the country.

After receiving the threats, several Jefferson County schools, including Columbine High School, were placed on lockout on Tuesday.

This is a developing story.

Pais' parents last saw her on Sunday and reported her missing to Florida authorities on Monday night, Surfside police said.

Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader confirmed at an afternoon news conference that Pais was found dead in Littleton, not far from Columbine High.

"We couldn't take the risk of having one student or staff member injured - so superintendents unanimously decided late last night to close school", Anderson wrote to parents Wednesday.

"She is armed and considered to be extremely unsafe", the Jefferson County sheriff's office said.

The FBI said Pais was "considered to be extremely dangerous" and "made threats to commit an act of violence in the Denver metropolitan area".

All classes and extracurricular activities for about a half-million students were canceled as a precaution, though sheriff's spokesman Mike Taplin said the young woman's threats were general and not specific to any school.

Pais traveled to Colorado on Monday and arrived at Denver International Airport later that day.

Every law enforcement agency in the state is taking part in the hunt for the teen, and investigators are chasing down "a significant number of leads to identify and locate Ms Pais", Phillips said.

"We know that there is a lot of anxiety right now in Colorado", Polis said in a statement.

Security around Colorado schools had already been ramped up this year because of the constant stream of threats related to the anniversary.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis said all troopers in Colorado are on the lookout for Pais.

Authorities said they believe she had been using a ride-sharing service in Colorado, and they don't believe she ever made it onto school property.

"There is no longer a threat to the community", FBI Denver said in a tweet.

Pais is about 5-foot-5 and was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, camouflage trousers and black boots, authorities said.

Her father told the newspaper he thought "maybe she's got a mental problem", but added: "I think she's gonna be OK".

Pais, who bought a pump-action shotgun after arriving in Denver, is considered armed and unsafe.
