Troopers: Missing 10-year-old Alaska girl found dead

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Authorities in Alaska say a 10-year-old girl has been found dead Friday, more than a week after she was reported missing in a remote Inupiat Eskimo town on Alaska’s northwestern coast.

Alaska State Troopers said Friday that Ashley Johnson-Barr’s remains were found east of Kotzebue.

The girl was last seen playing with friends at a local park Sept. 6. Her cellphone was later found a half mile from Rainbow Park, in the opposite direction of her home in the community of 3,100 people.

The search included assistance from 17 FBI agents earlier this week. Troopers spokesman Jonathon Taylor says five of the agents left Kotzebue Thursday for other assignments.

The Alaska State Troopers are the lead agency in the case. No other information was immediately released.
