Missing 13-year-old girl found dead in California park

Police are trying to determine the activities of a missing teen between the time she was reported missing from a foster home until her body was found in a Fairfield, Calif., park.

FAIRFIELD, Calif. — A 13-year-old girl reported missing Thursday has been found dead in a park in the Northern California city of Fairfield, police said.

A passer-by discovered the girl's naked body around 7 a.m. Friday in the city's Alan Witt Park and flagged down a police officer who was driving by, Fairfield Police Officer Cleo Mayoral said Saturday.

The girl was reported missing around 5:45 p.m. Thursday after she left a foster home in nearby Suisun City, Mayoral said. Her name was not released.

An autopsy was performed, but Mayoral said officials weren't releasing the results. He said there were no obvious signs of trauma.

No suspects have been identified, but detectives were canvassing neighborhoods and checking video images from surveillance cameras as part of their investigation, Mayoral said.

"We have all our resources working on this," Mayoral said. "All our detectives, our crime scene people, our criminologists and our patrol division."

He added investigators were trying to track the girl's activities in the hours before she ended up in Alan Witt Park.

Sacramento television station CBS13 reported the girl attended Green Valley Middle School, which is about eight miles from the park.

School Principal Gregg Hubbs declined to comment on the girl's death, and Fairfield police couldn't say if she had attended school on the day she was reported missing. Fairfield police referred questions about the scope of the investigation to the Suisun City Police Department, which did not return calls seeking details on the case.
