VACHERIE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- A 12-year-old St. James Parish girl who had been missing since Tuesday has been found dead in a cane field.

According to our media partner, WDSU in New Orleans, deputies say they found the body of Talaija Dorsey Sunday morning.

Deputies say the girl's mother noticed she was missing when a field stopped by looking to play with her, but she wasn't there.

Deputies have charged the girl's mother's fiance, John Celestine, for obstruction of justice.

There's no word yet if those charges will be upgraded.
