Missing 7 Year Old Juvenile Found Deceased in Pond in Eminence, KY

Missing juvenile was an autistic male

 On Friday, May 24, 2019, at approximately 9:51 p.m., the Kentucky State Police Post 5 Dispatch received a 911 call in reference to a 7 year old missing juvenile.  It was reported that the missing juvenile was an autistic male and had gone missing from his residence located in Eminence, KY. 


A missing person’s investigation was initiated by Post 5 Troopers and the juvenile was entered missing into the NCIC database.  Several agencies joined KSP in an expansive search for the juvenile in the area where he went missing.  The search for the juvenile lasted for approximately five hours. 


At approximately 3:39 a.m. the juvenile was discovered deceased in a pond by members of the Louisville Metro Dive Team.  The pond was located in close proximity to the juvenile’s residence where he went missing from.  The Henry County Coroner was requested to the scene and pronounced the juvenile deceased at 4:15 a.m.  An autopsy and toxicology will be conducted later this day by the Louisville Medical Examiner’s Office.  Next of kin has been notified.


Kentucky State Police Post 5 Spokesman Trooper Steven Dykes stated, “It is a sad and terrible outcome to lose this young man.  We are truly thankful and appreciative to all of the different agencies that assisted the Kentucky State Police in searching for him.  It is certainly not the outcome we ever hope to have, but we can be certain that by joined efforts, every effort was made to find him when every moment counts.  Please keep this young man, his family and all those that assisted in the search for him in your thoughts and prayers.”


The Kentucky State Police was assisted on scene and with the search for the juvenile by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, Eminence Fire Department, Henry County Emergency Management, Air Methods, Louisville Metro Police Dive Team, Commonwealth K-9, Roederer Correctional Complex K-9, Henry County Sheriff’s Department, Henry County Coroner’s Office and State EOC.
