A 4-year-old girl who disappeared while visiting family in Kissimmee has been found dead and submerged in a nearby holding pond, Florida deputies say.

They responded to the area around 7 p.m. on June 5 after the girl was reported missing, according to a statement from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

The child was last seen in the backyard with a family dog, according to deputies. Family members said she disappeared minutes later and the dog was seen swimming in the nearby pond, according to the sheriff’s office.

Multiple agencies responded, including bloodhound units, aviation units, the Osceola County Fire Department and the Orlando Fire Department Dive Team, the statement said. Divers found the child’s body submerged in the pond.

‘No signs of foul play were observed at the scene,’ the deputies said.

The sheriff’s office called the child’s death a “tragic accident.”

The office did not release his name.
