Colorado Police Pull Body From Irrigation Ditch

That's what family and friends are fretting about the badly decomposed body police pulled from an irrigation ditch yesterday in Greeley, Colo.

Twelve-year-old Kayleah Wilson has been missing since March 28, when she was last seen walking to a friend's birthday party.

Investigators acknowledge the body could be Kayleah's, but say they won't know for sure until they check dental records and DNA. It could be a matter of days if the dental records match the body -- or weeks, if they have to resort to DNA testing.

A worker checking the ditch for problems after heavy rain Tuesday found the body in about 3 feet of water early yesterday. Searchers had looked in the ditch twice shortly after Kayleah went missing.

A few of Kayleah's friends and residents gathered at the ditch as officers searched it for evidence yesterday afternoon. Investigators found what appeared to be a scrap of clothing in the ditch.
