we fail the girl, we will continue the search on ground and my boat This morning I was hoping And even as I understand today we were hoping and a praying that we would be able to find both the life. The little girl is deceased. She was failed here in the creek like a sidebar. And the mother is being notified. Oh, it's a sad day, but yet a good day. Because at least Mom knows for the little girl. Help us understand, Sheriff. The boy was not the one who was in the boat with another girl. I'm sorry. Your first picked up the mom or the mom and the boy was in the boat. Ah, Firefighter had the little boy. When the boat was overturned by the rushing water, the fireman lost a little. We're still searching for that little The little girl was located and the search continues. And we will be here to search water ground to relocate. You know that little bit people Chief Deputies over there now I have not spoken back with him. I was waiting for to meet with her to give her the message before I gave it out and I don't We're hearing reports that people are really emotional right now. Kind of where Staging one for the family and friends. What is the reaction that you're hearing from parents right now? And what has it been like that ever was emotional Family's emotional deficits? Emotional? I'm emotional. Anytime we deal with a case involving Children, get someone's child. It's someone's loved one. Somebody's brother, Sister. I'm emotional. The deputies or emotional is tough when you're out here. Searching for the dough is one thing we got a job to do when you're out here searching for child. We definitely got a job to do and to be searching for Children that are lost. We're hoping and praying and that we're gonna be able to reunite this family, these kids with this family and for us to find a body is a success. But it is not a successful we were hoping for. So it is emotional. I'm emotional about it. The deputies are everybody working. This seniors, the guys on the boats having to retreat that body from the water while ago. I mean, they'll have a rough night, but yet we'll be back again in the morning and we will continue to search. That's what we do more exactly where she is down and how close that was, where the car was. It was further down from the car. It was not in the news river. It was here in the creek, just like a a sidebar off of the creek, so to speak. But the little girl's body did not reach the mouth off the creek or the noose river. Will this impact of sorts for the little boy are gonna continue in the same area? Do you think you need to go more downstream? Way will continue to search upstream, downstream this creep that creep everywhere way will continue, hopefully leave no stone unturned. It's just it's a success that we found the body. But it is not the success that we were on the hoping for that we will continue to search this afternoon. I will tell you that we have just recently got some information, perhaps on a a location of interest off the little boy, and we'll be looking into that. They're looking into that as I speak. Just a little further down is is a location that we've got some interesting But that's just just to let you know that our search continues. And something about a helmet?
