Jessica Williams's body was found where East County Road 122 dead-ends at Big Lake, according to Mississippi County Criminal Investigations Commander Robb Rounsavall.
Williams was reported missing Tuesday night around 9 p.m., after she had been missing for around three hours. Williams's father reported that he last saw her outside of his home playing with her dog, on County Road 503, southwest of Gosnell. Rounsavall said the girl's bicycle was found in the ditch near a house further down the road, but that the place where her body was found was not anywhere it would be easy to walk or ride a bike.
She was located at 6:30 a.m. today (Wednesday), and Rounsavall said the investigation into her death is now beginning to ramp up.
