The body of a child found in downstate Watson, Illinois may be that of a missing girl.
7-year old Willow Long was last seen Sunday when she disappeared from the family’s home while her mother was taking a nap.
Crime scene tape has been put around the family’s home, but police are releasing few details at this hour.
We do know that a child’s body was found Monday night by a group of volunteers searching for the girl.
Authorities say a positive ID has not been made.
An autopsy is scheduled for today to determine how the child died and whether it might be Willow Long.
