Tragic end after 4-day search for missing girl

By

SEATTLE (AP) — A four-day search for a missing 6-year-old Washington girl ended tragically Thursday, as authorities say they believe they have found the body of Jenise Wright.

Authorities in Kitsap County say it's a criminal investigation, and they're trying to narrow in on a suspect. They said there have been no arrests in the case, and no cause of death was given.

An FBI team using search dogs discovered the body in a forested area near the mobile home park where the girl lived about 11:30 a.m. Thursday. Her family has been notified.

Jenise was last seen when she went to bed Saturday night. Her parents waited a day before calling for help because they say the girl had wandered around the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park on her own in the past.
