Community members are expected to gather for a candlelight vigil to remember Raul, who was reported missing by his family after he walked away from his home Wednesday morning.
More than 40 agencies from North and South Carolina, including the FBI, joined in the multi-day search for the boy.
Authorities believe the boy’s death was accidental, but the county medical examiner has not yet determined an official cause of death.
The vigil is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Good News Chapel on Pea Bridge Road in Laurinburg and the public is welcome to attend.
A public visitation will be held Tuesday and a funeral for Raul is scheduled for Wednesday.
