A Navajo Nation Police Department statement said the body was tentatively identified by parents of Anndine Jones after being found Wednesday evening by volunteer searchers.

No cause of death was released and positive identification was pending.

The girl was last seen March 14. She reportedly wandered away from her home 3 miles (5 kilometers) north of the Aneth Chapter House.

Navajo Police Chief Phillip Francisco said only limited information will be released while police and the FBI continue their investigation.

Navajo Nation Council Speaker Seth Damon said the tribe grieves with the girl's family and he thanked volunteers and search and rescue personnel.
