Authorities say body appears to be missing girl

SEATTLE (AP) - Washington authorities say a body found near a mobile home park appears to be that of missing 6-year-old Jenise Wright, who disappeared from her home over the weekend.

The body was found before noon Thursday in a forested area. The girl's parents have been notified.

In a statement, the Kitsap County Sheriff's Department said a coroner will make official confirmation of the identity, but "it appears that the body is that of Jenise."

Authorities said there have been no arrests in the case.

The girl was last seen when she went to bed Saturday night at her home near Bremerton, on the west side of Puget Sound across from Seattle.
