Somer Renee Thompson’s body has been found in a Georgia landfill, according to Florida law enforcement officials.

The 7-year-old went missing on Monday (10/19) as she walked home from school about a mile from her Orange Park, Florida neighborhood. Thompson was arguing with another child when her older sister scolded her. Upset, Thompson walked ahead of the group and was never seen alive again.

Acting on a hunch, Florida investigators followed dump trucks heading for a Georgia landfill on the Florida/Georgia border about 48 miles from where Thompson was last seen.

Investigators found the girl’s partially covered body amid the trash and refuse in the landfill. A positive ID was made from the clothes she was wearing and a birthmark.

“I fear for our community until we bring this person in. This is a heinous crime that’s been committed,” said Sheriff Rick Beseler.

Beseler said breaking the news to the girl’s devastated mother was “the hardest phone call I’ve ever had to make in my life.”

“This has been so unreal for the neighborhood,” said Sharon Galloway, who lives across the street from the Thompsons. “I just hope they get that son of a gun and tie him up by his short hairs.”

Florida police are interviewing 70 registered sex offenders in the Orange Park area.

Jaycee Lee Dugard, an 11-year-old California girl who was abducted from Lake Tahoe, California 18 years ago, has been found. Dugard was abducted on June 10, 1991 by two males from South Lake Tahoe in California. Police say a woman walked into an Antioch police station yesterday claiming to be the missing girl.

Local news footage shows a smiling woman who appears younger than 29 — the age Dugard would be now. Police say the woman is healthy. I would post the video, but the site that the video was hosted on has apparently crashed due to all the traffic from other sites.

Dugard’s mother, Terry Probyn, and stepfather, who separated due to the stress of their daughter’s abduction, are “thrilled and amazed” that she has returned. Probyn is flying to California to meet with the woman who says she’s her daughter.

There was no word on where she’s been or what she’s been doing for the last 18 years. According to Dugard’s stepfather, two suspects have been arrested in the case. A press conference is scheduled for 6 p.m. EST today. If the woman turns out to be the missing girl, her return will give hope to the many families of missing and abducted children.
