Body found in Washington state appears to be of missing child

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 08:42
By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - The body of a child found on Thursday near a Washington state mobile home park appears to be that of a 6-year-old girl last seen on Saturday and reported missing when she failed to turn up for dinner the following night, authorities said. Jenise Wright had gone to bed on Saturday in her family home near Bremerton, on the Kitsap Peninsula across the Puget Sound from Seattle, and was not seen by family members the next day, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office. Her parents notified police after she missed Sunday dinner, telling the sheriff's office that they had not initially been alarmed because she would often wander alone around the mobile home park where the family lived, checking in every few hours. After four days of searching led by local law enforcement, the Kitsap County Sheriff's office said on Thursday they had found a body that "appears to be that of Jenise." FBI investigators using sniffer dogs found the body in a wooded area "in close proximity" to the mobile home park, Kitsap County Sheriff Deputy spokesman Scott Wilson told a news conference.
