Missing two-year-old girl found dead

LANSING, MICHIGAN (AP) – A missing two-year-old girl was found dead in Detroit, United States on Wednesday, authorities announced, three days after her disappearance.

Wynter Cole Smith’s body was discovered in the evening near a municipal airport that is about 10 kilometres northeast of downtown Detroit, Chief Ellery Sosebee of the Lansing Police Department reported.

“I am deeply saddened to report that the search for Wynter Cole Smith has come to an end. This investigation has moved from a missing child case to a homicide investigation,” Sosebee added.

Sosebee declined to comment further on details of the ongoing investigation but promised the girl’s family will get justice.

“This is not the outcome anyone had hoped for,” the chief said.
