SEATTLE - Searchers combed through the woods near a Washington state trailer park on Tuesday for a six-year-old girl last seen in her bedroom on Saturday evening and reported missing when she failed to show up for dinner a day later, officials said.
Jenise Wright had gone to bed on Saturday in her family home in Bremerton, on the Kitsap Peninsula west of Seattle, and was not seen at all by family members the next day, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office.
Her parents notified police after she missed Sunday dinner, the sheriff's office said.
Investigators Tuesday said they were trying to determine whether the girl was abducted or had wandered off.
Jenise's parents took a lie detector test and were cooperating with the investigation, sheriff spokesman Scott Wilson said during a Tuesday news conference.
"The investigation, at this point in time, has been focused on her recovery. What we are looking for here is any trace of Jenise or where she may be," he said.
The FBI was assisting in the search.
Teams of volunteers and law enforcement were combing the woods surrounding the family's mobile home and police were searching through trash and interviewing neighbors for clues, Wilson said.
Two of the girl's older siblings have been removed from the home, the sheriff's office said, but would not reveal the reason citing privacy issues and the ongoing investigation.
