A body was last night found in a rural grave site during the hunt for a pretty 16-year-old blonde girl who has been missing for almost six weeks.
Police in North Ogden, Utah, are waiting for an autopsy but a county official said there is a ‘strong possibility’ that it is Alexis Rasmussen’s body.
The teenager went missing on September 10 and was last seen at a local pharmacy store in North Ogden after babysitting for a family friend.

Vanished: The pretty teenager went missing on September 10 and was last seen at a local pharmacy store in North Ogden after babysitting for a family friend
She was babysitting for Eric and Dea Millerberg around one mile from her home and her mother said she could stay overnight at their house.
But she left that night, saying she was going to meet a friend - before her parents called police 24 hours later when she did not arrive home.
Alexis sent a few texts while babysitting and around the time she was at the pharmacy, but there was no activity on her phone after that, records show.
The unidentified body was found on Tuesday after a tip from a confidential source, North Ogden Police Chief Polo Afuvai told the Salt Lake Tribune.
Smiles: Friends say they would have heard from Alexis if she had run away
Distinguishable: Alexis had a piercing on her lower left lip and upper right lip
Police have identified suspects but will not reveal who they are as the investigation continues. An autopsy was being carried out on Wednesday.
Dee Smith, Weber County’s chief law enforcement official, told the Salt Lake Tribune there is a ‘strong possibility’ that it is Alexis’s body.
The girl’s best friend Brenna Cain cried as she told the newspaper ‘it never would have happened’ if she had been with Alexis that night.
Pictures of Alexis, a blonde girl with two face piercings, have been shown on television, put on Facebook and plastered across the town on flyers.
She had run away from her home once in the past, but was only gone for a day and texted her mother and called her brother during that time.
