Police believe a body found by fishermen in Florida is that of missing nine-year-old Felecia Williams.
The little girl vanished on Friday evening from Doral Oaks Apartments in Temple Terrace.
A family friend picked Felecia up from her mother’s house in Ybor City and stopped at Doral Oaks to take a shower.
When she returned, the youngster was missing.
Felecia’s sister Shakelia Givens told Fox News: “She wouldn’t leave. She would never, ever wander off. She doesn’t have a reason to.”
Temple Terrace Police said a body was found in mangroves near Courtney Campbell Causeway, in Pinellas County, on Saturday afternoon.
They are waiting for a post-mortem examination to be carried out before they confirm whether it is the nine-year-old.
Officers have interviewed several people in connection with the Edison Elementary School student’s disappearance.
Temple Terrace police spokesman Michael Dunn said: “We don’t know what occurred here yet. That is still under investigation.”
