THATCHER, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say the body of a 3-year-old girl has been found buried in the backyard of a southeastern Arizona home.

Arizona Department of Child Safety spokeswoman Jennifer Bowser-Richards said Friday that an investigation of two young boys left alone in a Thatcher motel led to the discovery.

KGUN-TV reports (http://bit.ly/VTYAJG) a Graham County probation officer found the children June 26.

The officer had been looking for 23-year-old Joshua Matthew Cisneros, who is dating the boys' mother, 28-year-old Anna Marie Sanchez.

Officials say the investigation found that a sister had been missing since March 2012.

Authorities found the body Wednesday and are now awaiting autopsy results.

They are treating it as a homicide.

Cisneros and Sanchez are currently being jailed on unrelated charges.
