SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The coroner’s office and a large police presence have converged in an area near a business on Curtis Lane in West Shreveport, where a body has been found.

It’s happening in a field near a wood line about 100 yards from Interstate 20 behind a business in the 4100 block of Curtis Ln. in a commercial-industrial area between Greenwood Road and Pro Street, just a block away from Doug Williams Park, where Shamia Little was last seen before she disappeared late Tuesday night.

Officers were called to the scene just before 3 p.m.

Authorities on the scene have not said yet whether they believe the discovery of the body is related to Little’s disappearance, but they have been in contact with her family. Police say they are waiting on the coroner’s office to make an identification, and it appears the body has been there for “a while.”
