BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) – Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a missing 6-year-old girl who was last seen Saturday night when she went to bed at the family home in east Bremerton.

The sheriff’s office says Janice Paulette Wright was missing Sunday morning but the family didn’t become concerned and call for help until Sunday night because she had left the home on previous occasions and wandered around the neighborhood.

A search began about 1:30 a.m. Monday with deputies and volunteers in and around the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park, where the girl lives wither her parents and six siblings. Searchers have used dogs and heat-sensing equipment.

Janice is 3 feet tall, weighs 45 pounds and has black hair. She’ll be a first-grader this coming school year.
