The skeletal remains of a young girl that were found in Catahoula Parish and processed by LSU’s FACES Lab have been identified as a 12-year-old from Las Vegas.

The Catahoula Parish Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday that the remains were positively identified as Lexis Kaye Roberts of Nevada.  She had been last seen with her mother and an acquaintance, both of whom are also missing.

The remains were found earlier this month by a hunter in a wooded area north of Harrisonburg.  They were later sent to LSU to be analyzed at the FACES Lab, and deputies said they made an identification through dental records.

Investigators said Lexis had been traveling to the Grand Canyon with her mother, Suellen Roberts, and an acquaintance of her mother’s named Thomas Sanders.  They were last seen in a silver four-door sedan with a Nevada license plate, and are being sought by investigators for questioning.

Anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to call the Catahoula Parish Sheriff's Office at (318) 744-5411, or contact your local law enforcement, FBI or U.S. Marshals Service office.
