MOBILE, Ala. -- Court records say the aunt of a missing south Alabama teenager has been convicted of sex crimes.

Mobile County Circuit Court records filed Tuesday say Mendy Kent Wood has been found guilty of sodomy and sexual abuse of a child under 12.

Brittney Wood was last seen in 2012 and is presumed dead. Authorities believe she was among the young victims of a group of relatives and friends who sexually abused their own children and swapped them for sex for years.

Brittney Wood was last seen with her uncle Donnie Holland, who was found with a gunshot to the head and died in what was ruled a suicide days after Wood disappeared.

Mendy Wood's sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 12.
