BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) — Law enforcement officers are searching the home of a missing 8-year-old Arizona girl following the discovery of a body in the area.

Authorities didn't immediately identify the body found Wednesday as being that of the girl, Isabella "Bella" Grogan-Cannella of Bullhead City, or provide a cause of death.

KNXV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1u1REqS) the investigators served a search warrant at the family's home Thursday morning and could be heard telling people in the residence to come out with their arms up.

Bullhead City police didn't immediately respond to requests for information from The Associated Press.

The family reported the girl missing early Tuesday after she couldn't be found in the home.

About 40,000 people live in Bullhead City, which is on the Arizona-Nevada border some 100 miles southeast of Las Vegas.
