While searching Sunday for a girl whose family reported her missing, police in Carrollton, Texas, found a body they think is a 10-year-old from Oklahoma City.

Jasmen Gonzalez was reported missing shortly before midnight Saturday. Her family told police they thought she may have wandered away from Walnut Creek Apartments where they were visiting relatives.

About 3:30 p.m., a body was found in the 1100 block of Clint Street, Carrollton police Lt. Doug Mitchell said.

“We do believe it is the body of Jasmen Gonzalez,” Mitchell said.

Dallas County medical examiner's office will positively identify the body and determine cause of death, but Mitchell said there was no visible trauma to the body.

A person of interest was being interviewed by police late Sunday, Mitchell said. He would not divulge if that person knew Jasmen or was a stranger.

“We think she was abducted, but I can't give you any more than that at this point,” Mitchell said. “We don't think it's a random act.”
