The body of a handicapped missing 4-year-old Mexican girl has been found in her parents' apartment, officials said Wednesday.
Paulette Gebara Farah's parents were detained earlier this week after authorities said they found discrepancies in their stories.
Paulette disappeared March 22. Her parents, Alberto Bazbaz and Lisette Farah, said they put her to bed Sunday night and she was missing Monday morning, the state of Mexico attorney general's office said.
Paulette could not talk and needed help to walk.
Officials found Paulette's body in her bedroom early Wednesday morning in a space between the bed frame and the mattress, the attorney general's office told CNNMexico.
The family lives in Huixquilucan, a town in the greater Mexico City metro area.
The girl's disappearance had drawn great attention throughout Mexico and officials said they assigned 30 investigators to the case. Web pages from friends of the family and others were posted on the Internet, asking for help finding her.
Other details of her death were not immediately available. The attorney general's office postponed a news conference scheduled for midafternoon.
