On August 21, 2018, around 5:00pm, Jones County Sheriff’s Deputies and JCSD Search & Rescue (SAR) Teams responded to a call about a missing 2 year old in the Mill Creek Community. The toddler had apparently walked out of the front door of her home and authorities were called immediately upon discovery.
A local alert was sent out to help with the search. As the SAR Teams combed the area for a little over an hour, a search and rescue drone discovered the toddler’s body in a nearby pond. Jones County Deputy Coroner pronounced her dead at the scene.
Our prayers are with the family and those involved in the search.
Our appreciation to those that assisted at the scene: Jones County Emergency Operations Center, EmServ and a host of volunteers.
