BREMERTON, Wash. —

The Kitsap County Sheriff's Office said the body of a child has been found in the vicinity of a Bremerton mobile home park where missing 6-year-old Jenise Wright was last seen.

Wright was last seen by her family Saturday night, Aug. 2. After the search was initiated, more than 100 officers from 10 agencies, including the FBI, searched for the 6-year-old around the clock.

 Authorities said there was no Amber Alert in this case because there is no indication the girl was abducted. She was last seen in her family’s mobile home at 1438 N.E. Steel Creek Drive in East Bremerton.

Family members didn’t start looking for her until 8:30 p.m. Sunday, when they knocked on doors of the mobile home park. Police said Wednesday authorities searched all 103 home and all the residents were cooperative.

Janice’s family called 911 at 9:55 p.m. Sunday. A ground search included police dogs, and investigators also searched with a thermal imaging device. Janice was added to the FBI National Crime Information Center as a missing.

KIRO 7 found Janise's father, James Wright, was charged with molestation in 2000 for inappropriately touching a stepdaughter. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of assault.

Police said Wright's family has been notified, and after the scene is processed, the Kitsap County Medical Examiner will identify the victim and cause of death.

Was there an amber alert issued I wonder? Disturbing that her family didn't do anything until Sunday night. I hope she is found, I'm near Tacoma but obviously will keep an eye out!

Probably not. As we found out in Maine when a little girl went missing, there is certain criteria for an Amber Alert to be issued. I don't think this case meet the criteria.
