Riley Ann Sawyers–“Baby Grace” as she was known to millions–is finally at rest

The story of a little Two-Year-Old Girl’s too-short life

Petition seeks to Name Island in Memory of Riley Ann Sawyers

What can you do to help?

The little girl, whose unidentified body was found in a plastic storage tote resting on the banks of a sandbar in the Gulf of Mexico, has finally gone home.

First known as “Baby Grace,” the tiny toddler’s body was discovered by a fisherman on a late fall afternoon. Authorities were entrusted with the task of identifying the remains, wrapped in plastic, wearing a matching pink shirt and skirt, little sneakers from Target that had flashing lights in the heels.

The Galveston County Sheriff’s Department, in conjunction with the FBI, released a sketch of Baby Grace to the public.

People wondered, whose little girl was she? Why hadn’t someone reported her missing, such as her mother, at least in that area?

The authorities shifted through dozens of missing little girl cases, non-custodial parents who had taken their children. Could Baby Grace be one of these “little lost girls?”

A grandmother from Ohio, Sheryl Sawyers, was shocked to see the sketch and missing poster of Baby Grace.

Riley was the daughter of Sheryl’s son Robert and his high school sweetheart, Kimberly Trenor.
Sixteen-year-old Kimberly had moved in with Sheryl’s family when she became pregnant with RIley. Sheryl was there when Riley was born and watched her grow into a little blond sprite of a toddler. Then Kimberly and Robert broke up, Kimberly packed up her belongings along with little Riley and moved to Spring, Texas in June. Kimberly was in love with 24-year-old Royce Ziegler, a man she’d met online.
What’s the latest in the Riley Sawyers case? How can you help with the effort to name the small island where Riley Sawyers washed ashore in her honor?
