Body Of 3-Year-Old Girl Recovered From Flooded Texas Creek

LOCKHART (May 28, 2014) The body of a missing 3-year-old girl has been recovered from a rain-swollen creek near Lockhart, authorities said.

Searchers found the girl’s body late Tuesday night, Caldwell County emergency manager Martin Ritchey said.

She was reported missing about six hours earlier as storms moved through the area.

Authorities initially received a report that two children were missing, but a 4-year-old boy was able to get out of the creek on his own, Ritchey said.
