9yo Felecia Williams
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2631706/Body-naked-Florida-causeway-likely-missing-9-year-old-girl.htmlAuthorities in Florida say a naked body found in the water under a causeway in Tampa Bay might be that of a 9-year-old girl who has been missing since Friday afternoon.
Felecia Williams was reported missing after a family friend took her to her apartment complex while the girl's mother was at a hair appointment.
About 3:30 p.m. Saturday, fisherman at the Courtney Campbell Causeway called 9-1-1 and reported seeing a body floating near the shore
On Saturday night, Temple Terrace police announced that the body they found was likely Felecia,
'We don't know what occurred here yet,' Temple Terrace police spokesman Michael Dunn told
'That is still under investigation.'
The little girl's disappearance is unusual for several reasons.
Felecia's mother, Felecia Demerseon, said in an interview that she was getting her hair done when her daughter called to ask if she could go home with a former neighbor and family friend who now lives in another part of Tampa Bay.
However, 40-year-old Demerson says she didn't know the friend's last name, but said that her daughter had visited the woman in the past.
The friend and the little girl went to a fast-food restaurant and then to the apartment complex.
the friend told police that she went to take a shower and left Felecia in front of a TV watching a movie.
When she came out of the shower, she said Felecia was gone.
Authorities have not identified the family friend, but say that she does in fact exist and is cooperating with the investigation.
It wasn't until five hours after Felecia was last seen that the family friend called 9-1-1 or the girl's mother.
'I'm sitting here hoping there will be good news,' Demerson said Saturday morning. 'I know my baby. She would call her mama if she could.'
Demerson said there was another adult at the apartment when Felecia was there. That person, Demerson claims, was in a bedroom and never saw the girl.
'Felecia would never, never, just leave,"
Shakelia Givens, said. 'She would never, never wander off. … She wouldn't just leave. There was no reason for her to just up and leave.''
