BREMERTON, Wash., Aug. 8 (UPI) -- Police in Washington State trying to determine who dumped the body of 6-year-old Jenise Wright asked for tips Friday on anyone seen with muddy clothing.

Scott Wilson, a spokesman for the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office, said the body was found Thursday in a ravine near her home in Bremerton that is "not easy to get to." He said whoever committed the crime would have ended up with mud on both clothing and shoes.

Jenise's parents, James and Denise Wright, said they last saw her Saturday night when she went to bed. They reported her missing about 24 hours later, telling police they waited because Jenise frequently wandered off to play in the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park.

Wilson asked anyone who had seen someone wearing muddy clothes or trying to get rid of them or clean them to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.

More than 100 law enforcement officers became involved in the case after Jenise was reported missing, including a child abduction team from the FBI.
