SEATTLE — Law enforcement officers searching for a 6-year-old Washington state girl who vanished last weekend say they’re aware of a past molestation charge against her father but are focused right now on finding little Jenise Wright.

Court records show James Wright was charged more than a decade ago with molesting two girls, ages 8 and 15. He pleaded guilty in Whatcom County Superior Court in December 2001 to a misdemeanor assault charge related to the older girl. It was not immediately clear why the molestation charges were dropped. Prosecutors there did not immediately return a call.
