Missing girl's body found under Kemah boat dock
– The search for a 5-year-old girl at a Kemah marina came to a tragic end early Thursday morning, Texas Equusearch said.
A searcher found the girl's body under a dock
not far from her dad's boat, Equusearch confirmed with KHOU 11 News.
Earlier in the morning, the Kemah Police Department identified the girl as Fiona "Kitty" Caroll.
and friends said the girl went missing Wednesday evening, on her 5th birthday, as her dad prepared their boat for an upcoming trip. The girl's bucket was later found in the water, but an overnight search at the Kemah Boardwalk Marina did not turn up any other clues.
More than 100 members of law enforcement joined the search. A Galveston County dive team, the Kemah Fire Department, the Seabrook Police Department and the U.S. Coast Guard assisted in the search, and Texas Equusearch also brought in its sonar equipment
"I actually live down the street and it touched my heart…I came down here searching and hoping, hoping she found a playhouse or funhouse to play in," Robin Browning, volunteer, said.
Equuseach founder Tim Miller said he had been holding out hope for the same thing after authorities used sonar in the water for seven hours straight with no success.
"We're going to keep praying and hopefully she did wander away somewhere and she's going to say, 'Where is my dad and mom?', but until we know that we're going to keep searching," Miller said.
Miller says he delivered the devastating news to the child's parents as soon the body was found.
"They want to hold their kid, I know if it was my daughter I would want the same treatment we had given this family. I want to go home and hug my daughter," Browning said.
Investigators said they do not expect foul play in the case.
"We extend our sincerest sympathy for her mother, father and other family members," noted the Kemah Police Department in a press release. "We would like to thank all the police, fire, federal agencies and Texas Equusearch that assisted us during this tragic incident."
A GoFundMe page set up for the family says "She was an incredible girl, full of spunk and sass, and had the sweetest spirit."
Kitty's aunt, Christine Barr, sad, "She was a total joy. She absolutely sparkled."
Barr thanked law enforcement and all the Equusearch volunteers who came out to search overnight.
