The parents of a missing Washington child each took lie detector tests on Monday evening.
The Associated Press reported that Kitsap County sheriff's Deputy Scott Wilson said that the parents of Jenise Wright have taken lie detector tests to aid investigators in the search for their daughter.
The Huffington Post noted that authorities also said that the results of the polygraph will not be released because they will be used as an investigative tool in the case.
The six-year-old child was last seen at her home in east Bremerton on Saturday night. Wright’s parents say that the little girl went to bed that evening, but the next morning she was missing.
Wright’s parents did not report her missing until the following day and told investigators that was because she had left their home on several occasions before. Two other children, a 12-year-old girl and an eight-year-old boy have since been removed from the home.
Investigators believe that if Wright did leave on her own, she would have returned by now.
The child is set to start first grade this upcoming school year. She is described as 3 feet tall and weighs about 45 pounds. If anyone has any information on her whereabouts they are asked to contact police immediately.
