A missing 10-year-old Cecil County girl has been found dead in a field.
Investigators from the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit are now investigating the death of Kami Ring, of Charlestown.
Ring was found dead Monday evening in a field near a home where she had been staying.
The child’s body has been transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy. The cause of death has not yet been determined.
Shortly after 11:00 a.m. Monday morning, troopers responded to the 100 block of Waibel Road in Port Deposit for a report of a missing child. A resident of the home had called 911.
Police were told the child was last seen inside the home on Saturday night when it was assumed she had gone to bed.
Police learned that Kami had been staying at the Waibel Road residence at the time of her disappearance. Kami’s grandparents and one other individual, related to the grandmother, live in the home.
Authorities conducted a thorough search of the area and, at about 6:20 p.m. ET on Monday, Kami Ring’s dead body was discovered about sixty yards in front of the Waibel Road residence in a field near a shed. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
At this time, investigators have several leads and persons of interest. Calls are being taken by the Maryland State Police North East Barrack at 410-996-7800. Calls will remain confidential.
