LAME DEER- A body found Friday on the Northern Cheyenne reservation near Lame Deer has been confirmed to be that of 14-year-old Henny Scott.

According to Northern Cheyenne Tribe Vice President Conrad Fisher, FBI forensic investigators notified the family of Scott at 7 p.m. Friday night.

On Thursday, authorities released a missing person advisory for the Busby girl believed to be headed toward Hardin and injured. The advisory was later canceled without finding Scott.

A search party organized by the tribe went looking for Scott on Friday.

Neither the FBI, the Bureau of Indian Affairs nor the Montana Highway Patrol, which are investigating, have confirmed whether the discovery of the body is related to Scott’s disappearance.
