TYLER - Authorities say the body of a 3-year-old autistic boy has been found near a marina after the toddler disappeared from his lakeside home a day earlier.
Smith County Sheriff's Lt. Larry Wiginton says rescuers found the body of Evan Reed "a good little ways" from his home Saturday but did not specify the location of the Lake Palestine marina. An autopsy is planned.
Wiginton told the Tyler Morning Telegraph investigators are still talking to the family. The child's mother told authorities she last saw her son Friday evening on the couch watching cartoons.
Rescue teams from as far away as Louisiana helped in the search.
