Texas authorities confirmed that the body of a young girl found floating in the Brazos River is that of 12-year-old Teketria Buggs. Members from
EquuSearch, the volunteer search and recovery team based in Houston, made the discovery around 4 pm December 15, 2005.
Teketria Bugg was last seen December 2, 2005, asleep on her family's couch. After issuing an AMBER alert, Texas authorities called in the resources of the EquuSearch team.
Texas authorities have arrested Teketria's stepfather on unrelated charges and are now calling him a suspect in her disappearance and tragic death. He has yet to be charged.
