Authorities believe a body found in a Georgia landfill is that of missing 7-year-old Somer Thompson.

Officials are basing the tentative identification on clothing and a birthmark that matches the girl's.  An autopsy is planned for today.

Thompson disappeared Monday after running ahead of a group of children when they teased her on their way home from school.  She lived in Orange Park, Florida near Jacksonville.
