BEMIDJI (AP) - Bemidji police are trying to find out how long a 6-year-old girl was outdoors in subzero temperatures before she died.

Police say the girl’s mother and a neighbor reported a medical emergency at an apartment building just before 6:30 a.m. Thursday. Law officers and emergency medical personnel found the girl inside the building’s front entrance.

Authorities say the girl had signs of being exposed to the frigid weather. She was dead at the scene.

Police are trying to determine when the girl was last seen and how long she was exposed to the elements. Early morning temperatures in the Bemidji area were 27 below zero with a wind chill of 40 below.

The girl’s body was taken to the Ramsey County medical examiner’s office. Her name has not been released.
