BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - A sheriff's spokesman says the parents of a 6-year-old girl who disappeared from her Washington home and wasn't reported missing for a day have agreed to take lie detector tests and allow a search of the home.
   
Kitsap County Deputy Scott Wilson said both the home search and lie detector tests were in progress late Monday night.
   
Wilson says state child welfare workers removed two other children from the home earlier Monday.
   
About 80 searchers including dog teams looked Monday for little Jenise Wright, who was last seen Saturday night when she went to bed. Her family noticed her missing Sunday morning but didn't become worried and call for help until that night because she had left the home on previous occasions and wandered around the neighborhood.

PREVIOUS - A LEAP Alert has been issued for Jenise Paulette Wright, 6.

She was last seen by family members around 10 p.m. Saturday August 2, when she went to bed at the family home. 

Jenise is part Caucasian, Native American and Filipino with black hair and brown eyes .

She is believed to be 3 ft tall and weighing 45 lbs . 

The family said the child has left the home previously and wandered around the neighborhood with friends and siblings but checks in every few hours. 

When she wasn't in the house Sunday morning it was assumed she was in the local area. 

The family became concerned when they didn't hear from her by 8:30 p.m. and started a door to door check in their mobile home park. 

They called 911 at 9:55 p.m. August 3, when the family couldn't find her.
