Hamilton Township police say they've found the body of missing 4-year-old Emrie Schandorf-Woode in a pond.
"We don't know if she was playing on the rocks, if she slipped and fell, we won't know that for some time," said Hamilton Township Police Chief Scott Hughes.
Hughes said that Emrie liked the pond.
Police say that 4-year-old Emrie was last seen in the Turning Leaf subdivision along Turning Leaf Way off U.S. 22 at around 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
Rescue teams had been searching for her for most of the day.
"We are utilizing K9 units, Drones, and foot searches in an attempt to locate the location of Emrie," a Tweet from the Hamilton Police Department said.
Officials asked all nearby residents to check Ring cameras, search the area and to please call 911 if they see the missing child.
"We are asking residents in and around 22/3, Cochran, Vista Ridge, and Zoar Road to keep an eye out," a Tweet said.
Warren County’s dive team was called to search a pond in the subdivision just as a precaution.
At 6 p.m., search teams began going yard-to-yard in the Turning Leaf, Michels Farm and Cochran Road areas, according to a team. The teams entered backyards and officials asked neighbors to secure dogs and other animals.
An Amber Alert was not issued for Emrie yet because police did not believe that she was taken, only missing, Hughes said.
