UPDATE, 11:35 a.m.: Child welfare workers have removed two other children from the Washington home where a 6-year-old disappeared.

Kitsap County sheriff’s Deputy Scott Wilson says Washington Child Protective Services took an 8-year-old boy and 12-year-old girl from the east Bremerton home Monday, as the search continues for the younger girl, Jenise Paulette Wright.

Wilson says the two were the only other children at the residence. A previous report of six children there was incorrect.

Wilson says two parents also live in the home in a blended family.

Jenise was last seen Saturday night, but she wasn’t reported missing until Sunday night.

Bremerton is on the west side of Puget Sound, across from Seattle.

ORIGINAL POST: The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a 6-year-old Bremerton girl who was last seen in her bed at 10 p.m. on Saturday.

Jenise Paulette Wright was last seen in her family home at the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park, 1438 Steele Creek Drive in East Bremerton, according to the sheriff’s office.

The girl has vanished from the home twice before to wander around the neighborhood, a sheriff’s office news release said, but she has always checked in every few hours.

The family reported the child missing around 9:55 p.m. on Sunday, after going door to door around the mobile home park in search of her, the sheriff’s office said.

Jenise has black hair, brown eyes, is 3 feet tall and weighs 45 pounds, according to reports.

Sheriff’s office search and rescue crews, K-9 teams and volunteers are looking for the girl.

Anyone with information about the missing child should contact the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office at (360) 308-5400.
