Authorities have released the 911 call that led to the discovery of the body of a missing 16-year-old girl in Michigan.

Mujey Dumbuya was found dead in a wooded area of Kalamazoo just days before she would have testified as the victim in a rape trial. The man she accused of raping her, Quinn James, is now charged with killing her.

The unidentified caller who spotted her body on Jan. 28 was calm, but he knew something was wrong. He told dispatchers he was out for a walk with his girlfriend when he saw her.

Caller: "I'm calling this morning to report what I believe to be a body in the woods. I'm not sure, I called to the person and they did not respond."

Dispatch: "And so it's in the wooded area of it? Is it wrapped in anything?"

Caller: "Nope, nope, like when we first saw it, it wasn't even clear it looked like a pile of clothes laying on the ground but then you could see her leg was bent to the left, she was laying on her back I could see the braids in her hair."

Investigators said the body was found on N. Prairie Avenue, which is close to James' childhood home.

According to authorities, James was identified on surveillance video near Prairie Avenue on the night Dumbuya disappeared.
