BREMERTON, Wash. - The search for a missing 6-year-old Bremerton girl has entered its third day.

Jenise Wright has not been seen by her family since Saturday night. Neighbors told investigators they saw her Sunday afternoon.

Jenise and her family live in a mobile home on Steele Creek Drive in east Bremerton.

Authorities have canvassed the surrounding area.

The search intensified Tuesday, concentrating inside the mobile home park containing 103 homes.

 The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said 10 law enforcement agencies with 112 law enforcement officers are involved in the search.

Jenise Wright's mother and father took a lie-detector test but the results are not being released because of the ongoing investigation.

Authorities are still in the process of talking to every registered sex offender in the area.  Nine are living nearby.

The Sheriff's Office spokesman said they will get search warrants for buildings and any surveillance video in the area if needed. 

"We all praying this this turns out positive but we're going to pursue this until such time we get an answer one way or the other," said Deputy Scott Wilson with the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators are also looking through all of the garbage in the dumpsters hoping to find a clue about what happened to Jenise.

The FBI is stopping all vehicles coming in and out of the Steele Creek mobile home park in Bremerton where Jenise was last seen.

Debbie Peckman is the family's next door neighbor.

“She's just such a sweet little girl and she was always kind of looking for attention and she always wanted to help me with my yard and come see my dogs and my backyard," said Peckman.

 Jenise’s siblings last saw her Saturday night in the room they share.

Sunday morning she was not in her room.

However, her family thought she was wandering around the park like she often does so they weren’t alarmed.

They searched for the girl Sunday afternoon and called police Sunday night at 10:55 p.m.

“I'm kind of  not too surprised because she did kind of wander freely she was outside all the time," said Peckman.

 Jenise was spotted by some neighbors Sunday afternoon in the mobile home park, according to investigators.

Peckman says the girl never wandered off to stores or the woods.

 "She was very outgoing. Not shy at all which kind of scares me a little bit because she might get in someone's car with them," said Peckman.

 As the search intensifies the Kitsap County Sheriff, like everyone, is holding out hope.

 "Anybody that has children knows this tear's people's hearts out," said Kitsap County Sheriff Steve Boyer.

 Jenise Wright is about to be a first grader at Cottonwood Elementary.

Anyone with information on this case is urged to call 1-800-CALLFBI.
