Posted: Updated:
GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Police in coastal Mississippi say they have called off the search for a missing 5-year-old girl after finding a young girl's body in an abandoned mobile home.
    
Gulfport Police spokesman Sgt. Damon McDaniel says the body has not yet been positively identified as that of Janaya Makayia Thompson.
    
He says the Harrison County coroner has the child's body for identification and autopsy. McDaniel says the mobile home is being treated as a crime scene.
    
Janaya was last seen about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot just outside her family's apartment.
    
Coroner Gary Hargrove talked to the girl's father Thursday morning, family members gathered around, consoling him and sobbing.
