PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Escambia County deputies say human remains found in a Pensacola-area storage unit have been identified
as belonging to a missing 11-year-old girl.

Tia McShane had been missing since at least 2007. The girl had cerebral palsy and used a wheelchair.

Authorities began an intense search for the girl after her father learned that his estranged wife had died in June. He had last seen the girl in 2002.

The remains were found Sept. 30 at a storage unit owned by Tia's mother.

Investigators say they are still trying to determine how the girl died.

The sheriff's office reports that the child's Medicaid had not been used since 2006 and that was the last time a doctor visit was made.
