WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a body found in a suburban Denver park is that of missing 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway.

The disclosure came Friday, a week after the fifth-grader disappeared after leaving her Westminster home to meet friends for the short walk to school.

The body was found Wednesday about 7 miles southwest of her home. Authorities said it was not intact, but they did not release further details.

Two days after she disappeared, Jessica's backpack was found in a neighborhood about six miles north of her house.

Authorities say she may have been abducted by someone in the community.
