Body of missing girl, 11, found ashore near Long Beach
Long Beach Police Chief Flint Wright says the girl’s body washed ashore Saturday morning. He identified her as Lindsey Mustread.
The girl and her 9-year-old brother had been wading in the surf on the Long Beach Peninsula on Thursday when they apparently got caught in a rip tide.
Her brother, Kenneth, was rescued that afternoon after treading water for about a half hour. A Coast Guard air and water search for the girl for seven hours Thursday.
Wright has said the family is from Chimacum on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula.
