Child found after incident near Edinburgh dam

An 11-year-old child has been found after going missing near Edinburgh Dam on Sunday.

The Edinburgh Police Department, water rescue teams, and Edinburgh Fire and Rescue were dispatched to the Edinburgh Dam on State Road 252 after a report of a missing child. The pre-teen was last  seen next to the water by his mother.

Deputy Chief Mercado located him after a concerned citizen reported a child walking alone on U.S. 31.

The child walked away from the water and was unable to locate his mother, so he began walking home, officials say.
