TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an autopsy has confirmed that a body found floating in Tampa Bay is a missing 9-year-old girl.
Felecia Williams went missing Friday night after going to visit a family friend in Tampa. Boaters found her naked body off the Courtney Campbell Causeway near Clearwater on Saturday afternoon.
Clearwater Police spokesman Rob Shaw says there were no visible signs of trauma.
Police say 23-year-old Eboni Wiley told them she picked up Felecia up on Friday and they went to her apartment. She told police she discovered Felecia missing when she got out of the shower but didn't alert authorities for five hours.
Wiley was charged Sunday with making false statements to law enforcement and released on a $2,000 bail. It's not clear whether she has a lawyer.
