UPDATE: The Dallas County medical examiner has determined that the body recovered Sunday in Carrollton is that of Jasmen Gonzalez, the 10-year-old who went missing Saturday night, according to TV news reports.
CARROLLTON -- A 10-year-old Oklahoma City girl who disappeared while with her family visiting relatives in the Dallas area has been found dead, police say.
The body of Jasmen Gonzalez, who was last seen Saturday night at an apartment complex, was located Sunday afternoon several blocks away behind a residence, Carrollton police say.
The Dallas County medical examiner determined that the body is that of Gonzalez, according to TV news reports.
Lt. Doug Mitchell says police do not believe the killing was random and the victim had no obvious signs of trauma. He says investigators have examined an SUV and that a person of interest has been interviewed.
CARROLLTON, Texas - After a day-long search for 10-year-old Jasmen Gonzalez, police uncovered a body just a few blocks from the apartment complex where the girl was last seen.
"There was no trauma on the body. There is nobody in custody at present," said Lt. Doug Mitchell.
But police do say there is a person of interest.
Sunday afternoon, police towed a pickup that had been parked outside the apartment where the little girl had stayed.
Officers spent the day interviewing friends and family members.
Police say Jasmen and her parents, who live in Oklahoma City, were in Carrollton to visit relatives.
Investigators originally thought the girl may have wandered out of the home in her sleep and got lost or injured.

DOSWELL, Va. (WAVY) - A celebration was held in Northern Virginia cheering the happy ending in the search for a young autistic boy.
Dozens gathered at a local community center in Doswell, Virginia for a candlelight celebration.
This was after crews found 8-year-old Robert Wood Jr. on Friday.
Many of those attending helped in the search for the child.
He disappeared a week ago and was found in a creek bed by a volunteer.
The investigation into the disappearance of three year-old Aliayah Lunsford continues in Lewis County, but community members say they will continue to hope for her safe return.
Saturday marked five weeks since Aliayah disappeared from her Bendale home.
After more than a month searching the woods and in the water, police are still hesitant to release much information about their investigation.
We do know that the FBI headquarters relocated earlier this week to a more rural part of the county, but have since moved back to the State Police barracks in Weston.
12:19 a.m. EDT, October 31, 2011
It’s a story most have heard by now, a story that hundreds of thousands anxiously followed.
A story that, by day six, had brought out 6,000 volunteers—some from as far as Alaska—because a little boy with autism remained lost in the woods. On Sunday, Oct. 23, on a hike in the 80-acre North Anna Battlefield Park, the young boy darted away from his father and his girlfriend.
Somehow, the nine-year-old Robert Wood Jr. eluded search teams, for six day. The teams covered over 22-square-miles of territory. His rescue came right before a storm hit the area, bringing freezing temperatures and sleet.

Casey Anthony's attorney is speaking out about the release of the names of the jurors in the case. Jose Baez appeared on FOX News Channel's Geraldo at Large Sunday night.
Judge Belvin Perry held off on releasing the names until October to give the public a cooling off period.
Jose Baez said releasing the names was a disgrace to our justice system. "They raised their hands and they swore to uphold the law and to truly try this case. They did that and now their being vilified for it because it didn't work out the way the media wanted it to. I'm truly just disgusted by it.
Police dogs sniffed atop animal graves in southern Aruba about a month ago for the remains of Robyn Gardner, but not for reasons that The National Enquirer is reporting, according to Taco Stein, spokesman for the Office of the Public Prosecutor in Aruba.
Gardner, of Frederick, went missing on the island Aug. 2.
Police searched the area not because witnesses reported that they saw Gardner abused there, as The National Enquirer is reporting this week, but because “it is an area that one could get rid of a body,” Stein said Friday.

Authorities have found the body of a female just a short distance from where an Oklahoma City girl who was visting relatives in Carrollton with her family was reported missing.
No identification had been made, police said in a Sunday afternoon news conference.
The body was found about 3:30 p.m. Sunday as the FBI, the Texas Department of Public Safety and several area police departments had conducted searches throughout the Carrollton neighborhood.
Jasmen Gonzales, 10, was last seen about 11:45 p.m. Saturday in a residence in the 1300 block of Walnut Street in Carrollton.
Earlier in the day, authorities said they believed that Jasmen may have wandered away from the residence in her sleep.
Carrollton police said Jasmen, who is not familiar with the area. Police noted that she was not wearing clothes for the cold conditions Sunday morning.
Just when you think we might get a break from the couple, up they pop.
They made headlines Saturday by attending the “Family Unity Walk and Run,” an event in their neighborhood to honor their late granddaughter, Caylee. I’m not sure the footage was flattering: Cindy wore stylish sunglasses and smiled broadly as she took pictures. Oh, the strange vibes.
But George and Cindy have kept me scratching my head for the last three years. I thought they were foolish to make those TV appearances before Casey’s murder trial. They seemed to make matters worse for Casey, and the turnover in their lawyers suggested they didn’t follow public-relations advice.
Then Casey was acquitted, and now I wonder: Were George and Cindy savvy with those TV appearances? Could it be they helped Casey ultimately by taking the focus off her? (Oh, and the couple got a lot of trips to New York, too.)

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) — A U.S. businessman who has been jailed in Aruba for nearly three months as a suspect in the death of his traveling companion must remain in custody for at least 30 more days to give investigators more time to gather and evaluate evidence, a judge on the island ruled Friday.
Aruban prosecutors announced the ruling after a closed hearing on the Dutch Caribbean island. Gary Giordano, a 50-year-old employment agency owner from Gaithersburg, Md., has been in jail since Aug. 5, three days after he told police companion Robyn Gardner was swept out to sea while snorkeling.

One of the last people to see Celina Cass alive says she feels “a lot of guilt” that she visited the New Hampshire girl’s home the night she disappeared but failed to protect the 11-year-old from whoever killed her.
“If I’d have stayed there an extra hour, maybe nothing would have happened,” Cassandra Hunt of West Stewartstown, N.H., told the Herald. “It’s hard to live with that.”
Hunt, who lives near the home Celina shared with her family, said neither she nor another guest saw anything that caused them to worry about the little girl the night of July 25.

North Ogden » Friends and family of 16-year-old Alexis Rasmussen remembered the spunky, lively girl Saturday morning as the one who always looked out for others, a glowing teen whose smile “could light up a whole city.”
Mourners gathered at the North Ogden LDS Stake Center for the teen’s memorial service to talk about a short but spirited life that was cut short after she was discovered dead Oct. 17, buried near Interstate 84 in Morgan County.
“She was vivacious. She was free-spirited. She was smart,” said her aunt Brittany Rudd, who spoke at “Lexi’s” service, which brought a few hundred attendees. “She was a really sensitive and caring person.”
Alexis was first reported missing when she didn’t return home from baby-sitting for Eric and Dea Millerberg at their North Ogden home Sept. 10. A tip from a confidential source later led police to her body.
