GLENN COUNTY, Calif. (KTVU) - Sheriff's investigators in Glenn County say the burned body of a young girl has been found, and they are looking into whether it is a six year old reported missing from Sacramento.

The body was found by firefighters in a dry creek bed in the town of Artois.

The coroner said it appears to be a girl between five and 10 years old. The Glenn County Sheriff says she appears to be the victim of a homicide.

The Sacramento County Sheriff has sent DNA samples to Glenn County to try to determine if the body is that of a missing girl.
