12 year old Kayleah Wilson had been missing since March 28, 2010 after disappearing while walking to a birthday party. Sadly, Kayleah Wilson was found dead on May 19 in an irrigation ditch. Police have not released the cause of death. Her body was found 1/2 mile from where she lived. The case is now considered a homicide.
A worker checking the ditch after heavy rain found the body in about 3 feet of water, said police. The decomposed body had been there for some time. Family friend Cindy Rogers said Kayleah loved to laugh: “She had a really great personality. She’s going to be missed.”
A body found in a drainage ditch in Greeley on Wednesday has been identified as that of Kayleah Wilson, who had been missing for two months.

The case is now considered a homicide. Authorities have not announced a suspect or person of interest.
