LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The body of an eastern Kentucky toddler has been found in a reservoir near his home. Two-year-old Gage Max Williams went missing around 1 p.m. Tuesday and was found six hours later.
More than a dozen Kentucky State Police troopers along with 100 volunteers in the Pine Knot community of McCreary County began searching a heavy wooded area near the home. People used ATVs, horses and boats to try and find the little boy.
The parents of the two-year-old were home when Gage wandered away, but Kentucky State Police aren't saying what the parents were doing or where they were in the house when the child found his way out.
"We have to do some additional investigation at the residence," said Lt. Curtis O'Bannon with KSP Post 11 in London. "We just want the facts of how this child ended up where the child ended up."
State police won't say if foul play is involved. For now, they're only saying they have opened a death investigation.
