(Newser) – The remains of a young girl whose body washed ashore in a storage bin were tentatively identified by Texas officials yesterday, and the child's mother and stepfather have been arrested on charges related to her death. The child called Baby Grace is now thought to be 2-year-old Riley Ann Sawyer, based in part on a description from the baby's grandmother in Ohio.

The child has been missing since July, when her mother, Kimberly Trenor, and stepfather, Royce Zeigler, told relatives that someone claiming to be an Ohio social worker took her from her Spring, Texas, home. The incident had not been reported to police. Trenor moved to Spring in late May or early June to marry Zeigler, who she met online.
