The body of a child has been found in the vicinity of the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park, Kitsap County Sheriff's Office investigators said Thursday in the state of Washington.
The body has not yet been identified, but it was found near where Jenise Wright, 6, went missing on Sunday. Wright's family has been notified.
The remains have been turned over to the Kitsap County Coroner's Office, which will determine cause and manner of death.
No arrests have been made.
More information is due to be released this afternoon.
Jenise was last seen when she went to bed Saturday night at her home near Bremerton.
Her family said they didn't become worried and call for help until Sunday night because the child had left the home on previous occasions and wandered around the neighborhood, authorities have said. They felt it was relatively safe because the mobile home park is fenced.
The parents took FBI lie-detector tests Monday night, but the results have not been disclosed. Their home was also searched twice by different sets of authorities, Wilson said Wednesday.
Court records show the father, James Wright, was charged more than a decade ago with molesting two girls, ages 8 and 15. He pleaded guilty in Whatcom County Superior Court in December 2001 to a misdemeanor assault charge related to the older girl. It was not immediately clear why the molestation charges were dropped. Prosecutors there did not immediately return a call.
Kitsap County sheriff's Deputy Scott Wilson said Wednesday that the parents have been extremely cooperative.
