    SALISBURY, Md. — The body of a Maryland girl who authorities say was abducted by a registered sex offender was found Friday after thousands of volunteers fanned out to look for her.

    Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said that the body of 11-year-old Sarah H. Foxwell was discovered at about 4 p.m. near the Delaware state line. He offered few other details. Thomas J. Leggs Jr., 30, has been charged in her kidnapping.

    Leggs is a former boyfriend of the girl's aunt, who is her legal guardian. A public defender representing him has not returned a phone call.

    Thousands of volunteers gathered in Salisbury to help in the search Friday.

    Lewis said Sarah was last seen Tuesday night at her home on Maryland's Eastern Shore. A relative discovered she was missing early Wednesday while checking on Sarah and her 6-year-old sister. A charging document says Leggs was the last person seen with Sarah.

    A "juvenile witness" awoke during the night Tuesday and saw Sarah leave the bedroom with "Tommy," and said he was wearing blue jeans, an orange jacket and white sneakers, the charging document says.

    The statement of probable cause also says Sarah's aunt, Amy Fothergill, with whom Sarah lives, noticed that Sarah's green toothbrush was missing from the home. Deputies found a green toothbrush and a lollipop in a truck Leggs admitted driving. Leggs said he had been wearing jeans and white sneakers the previous night — the same clothes he was wearing when police questioned him.

    The sheriff said Leggs has been uncooperative and "of no assistance to our investigators."

    Leggs is listed on the Maryland and Delaware sex offender registries. The Maryland listing notes that he is a child sex offender, but does not give details about his conviction.

    Lewis said Leggs has been convicted of sex offense in Wicomico County and was charged Oct. 29 with fourth-degree burglary.

    In 2001, Leggs was convicted in Delaware of rape for having sex with a victim who was 16 or 17, according to the Delaware registry. The registry describes his risk level as "high" and notes he is unemployed.

    Leggs, who has been convicted of assault several times, also is awaiting trial on charges of burglary and destruction of property in Ocean City.

    A tragic end to a tragic story. How the fuck was this guy out on the street after committing SEVERAL sexual assaults and was a "high" risk? How do these guys keep getting out to reoffend.

    I hope they put the needle in this guys arm(which is to humane for a piece of shit like this, thank you very much you ACLU bastards).

    Oh, jeez! I was hoping (admittedly against reason) that she was still alive.

    Dammit. Dammit all to hell.

    I take the abduction, molestation and murder of little girls by pedophiles seriously (see link in my sig line--it will come down when Lori's killer is *finally* executed).

    Oh, fucking dammit. Another family like Lori's who get to suffer the holidays in pain for the rest of their days on earth.

    Dammit. :evil:

    It seems you already know how he was on the street: "ACLU bastards."

    We simply cannot count on the state protecting us from these predators. We need to maintain a certain vigilance, (and even, perhaps, a certain vigilanteism?). In addition to this guy rotting in hell, I hope every adult male in Sarah H. Foxwell's family has a tough time getting to sleep the rest of their lives.

    It was the responsibility of her father to protect her. He is either dead, or should be.

    Thank's for making my night worse. Some really bad things happened to my daughter, not this bad but pretty damn close. I have always felt that it was my fault because I wasn't there all the time to protect her, so you just answered it for me. :(

    More tragedy, but highly predictable. The guy needs a single bullet to the head. Use a .22 short in the right spot to save money. The people who enabled this guy to commit this horrendous crime need to be brought to justice.

    That's to quick and painless. Douchebags like this need to suffer long and hard before death.

    I buy her concern because of what happened to her friend. But you use this thread to take a shot at her. No life huh, asshat.
