Tragic end after 4-day search for missing girl
UPDATE: A four-day search for a missing Washington girl who vanished from her home over the weekend came to a tragic end Thursday, as authorities said they believe they have found the body of 6-year-old Jenise Wright. Authorities in Kitsap County said Thursday afternoon that they’re trying to narrow in on a suspect, and they’re “not ruling out anything.” “This is going to be a criminal investigation, there’s no doubt about that,” said Deputy Scott Wilson with the Kitsap County sheriff’s office. An autopsy scheduled for Friday will determine the manner and cause of death, Wilson said, but “we suspect that she just did not go off by herself and fall into some bushes and die.” READ MORE HERE

EMERTON, Washington—After dinner on Saturday night, the parents of six-year-old Jenise Paulette Wright say their daughter went safely to bed.

Our hearts just go out for this little girl, and were going to do everything we can to find her,” Kitsap County Steve Boyer told reporters Tuesday. “We’re going to hope for the very best.” READ MORE HERE
