WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities looking for a missing 10-year-old Colorado girl are asking the public for help finding a suspect, a day after finding a body in a park.

Police have yet to link the body found 7 miles from Jessica Ridgeway's home to her Oct. 5 disappearance, or even say if it belongs to a child. Jessica disappeared after leaving home to meet friends at a park for her walk to school.

On Thursday, the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit released a list of changes that a person committing a crime against a child would exhibit. Among them: sudden differences in appearance, missed appointments, being absent from work, or leaving town with no explanation.

An FBI spokesman says the suspect could "be your boss, your friend" or a family member. Police have ruled out Jessica's parents.
