    OMGosh! Gram and I were just talking the other day about how kids with autism love the water! When my AS son was a toddler, I had the hardest time keeping him away from lakes and ponds!

    I pray this little one is found swiftly and safely ..... This is always a fear I have with my son too, even though he is a very good swimmer it is still worrysome.

    This place is a camping and boating area -- lots of woods, trails and a fair sized lake. This video gives you an idea. Even if she didn't fall into the water, she could be wandering around those woods.

    The news stations haven't announced she's been found on their breaking news banners yet, so there's still hope.

    That topix page is now gone. There must be some kind of breaking news, I would think.

    Missing Toddler Found Dead in Barling
    Staff Writer
    10:50 PM CDT, September 11, 2010


    A missing little girl was pulled from the water at Springhill Park in Barling late Saturday evening.

    She was found dead in Massard Creek around 9:30 p.m. by Crawford County Search and Rescue. About 100 volunteers had been searching for the 3-year-old girl in the area around Lock and Dam Road since about 5 p.m.

    Officials say the child was autistic and loved the water. Her family had been camping in the area and they went to get ice cream, according to Chief Tracy Powell with the Barling Police Department.

    So sad. Children with disabilities can be so vulnerable.
    Bless this child's family.
    The above post is strictly my opinion, unless otherwise specified.
