Officials Recover Body Of Missing Danbury Girl
Officials have found the body of a missing 3-year old girl in a canal near her home in Burnett County. As we reported earlier in the day, Reena Mae Williams went missing near her home in Danbury on Tuesday night at about 7pm.
Burnett County officials have reported to multiple media outlets that the body of Reena Williams was found at about 4:50 p.m. Wednesday about 25 yards from her home in Danbury. At a press conference earlier this evening, officials thanked the hundreds of volunteers who searched for Reena.
The girl disappeared after apparently wandering away from her home.
Burnett County Sheriff Dean Roland says it’s an open investigation, but right now it is being treated as a missing person case.
Officials say they will drain the canal for any clues.
Officials say grief counselors are helping the Williams’ family. An autopsy is planned.
