The body of an 11-year-old girl who was swept away by waves on a Washington state beach Thursday has been found, authorities said.

People walking along the beach in Long Beach made the grisly find Saturday, about a mile where Lindsay Mustread was last seen on Thursday, NBC affiliate KING 5 reported. The girl and her 9-year-old brother were wading in the surf when Lindsay was apparently caught in a rip tide and taken out to sea.
