SEATTLE (AP) - Law enforcement officers searching for a 6-year-old Washington state girl say they have found a child's body in the vicinity of the mobile home park where the girl vanished over the weekend.

Authorities in Kitsap County said Thursday the remains have not been identified and an autopsy will determine the manner and cause of death.

They provided few other details, saying they would give more information at an afternoon news briefing.

Dozens of law enforcement officers, including from the FBI, have been searching for Jenise Wright since early Monday.

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