LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police investigating the disappearance of a 10-year-old Las Vegas girl last week are at the scene of the discovery of a child's body in an undeveloped housing tract in North Las Vegas.

Las Vegas police homicide Capt. Chris Jones says authorities didn't immediately know if the body is Jade Morris.

North Las Vegas police say a passer-by called 911 about noon about a girl's body in a remote area near Dorrell Lane and North 5th Street. That's about 10 miles north of downtown Las Vegas.

Las Vegas police say Jade was last seen by her family at about 5 p.m. last Friday with Brenda Stokes.

Stokes was later arrested after she was accused of slashing a co-worker with razor blades at the Bellagio resort casino. Stokes is now in jail.
