    This is so sad
    From link
    A police spokesman said: 'Following a call from a parent at about 2120hrs last evening expressing concern for the welfare of her six-year-old son and her 71-year-old mother, police attended the elderly woman’s address in Castle Bytham. No-one was there and a search began for the missing persons and the car owned by the grandmother.
    'The little boy had gone to spend the previous night with his grandmother and they were due to return home on Thursday evening. Ground searches were begun and an RAF search and rescue helicopter was called in to assist.

    So sad regardless of what did happen to put them both there. Prayers for us all.

    Devastating! Seems likely the youngster fell in and she went in to rescue him... and of course, being a duck pond, the slightest disturbance of the bottom would murk up the water impossibly bad. She probably died of hypothermia fishing around for him. :(

    God be with the rest of their family--
