BREMERTON, WA. (AP) - A sheriff's spokesman says the parents of a 6-year-old girl who disappeared from her Washington home and wasn't reported missing for a day have agreed to take lie detector tests and allow a search of the home.
   
Kitsap County Deputy Scott Wilson said both the home search and lie detector tests were in progress late Monday night.
   
Wilson says state child welfare workers removed two other children from the home earlier Monday.
   
About 80 searchers including dog teams looked Monday for little Jenise Wright, who was last seen Saturday night when she went to bed. Her family noticed her missing Sunday morning but didn't become worried and call for help until that night because she had left the home on previous occasions and wandered around the neighborhood.
