November 26, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A man and woman who never reported her toddler missing have been arrested by investigators trying to identify a girl being called "Baby Grace" whose body washed up on Galveston Bay in a storage bin.

Authorities are awaiting DNA test results but said they believed the girl is 2-year-old Riley Ann Sawyers of Spring.

The girl's 17-year-old mother and a 24-year-old man reportedly told relatives that the baby was taken in July by someone claiming to be an Ohio social worker, but never told police.

After police searched their Houston home, they were charged with injury to a child and tampering with evidence.

Riley's 20-year-old father said a he has a photo his daughter "and the picture of Baby Grace is so similar -- it kind of scares me."
