The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office responded to an address on the 31000 block of Washington Loop at approximately 4:30pm on Sunday, September 9th, in reference to a call for a missing 2-year-old child. Prior to law enforcement arrival, the child was located by family members in a pond on the property.
Charlotte County Fire and EMS also responded to the scene. All possible life-saving measures were taken, but the child unfortunately passed away. This is still an active investigation, so there are no further details available at this time.
We ask that media respects the family’s privacy as they grieve. We will provide further information here as the investigation progresses.
