Adult sisters of missing Washington girl speak out

BREMERTON — Two adult sisters of a missing 6-year-old Bremerton girl are speaking out as more than 100 officers from 10 law enforcement agencies search for the child.
Investigators don’t know if the girl, Jenise Wright, wandered off or was the victim of an accident, abduction or homicide.
The adult sisters said Tuesday they are taking care of their younger siblings. Coralise Almajero and Melanie Davis told KING-TV they also feel the need to defend their mother and stepfather.
Almajero also responded to comments about her little sister’s freedom to play in the neighborhood where she lived.
She said Jenise always “stays in the neighborhood. She knows you don’t leave. She knows you don’t go in people’s houses. You go and play with your friends, you come and check in.”
