A four-year-old Maine boy was found deceased over the weekend in a farm pond near his home.
The Maine Warden Service responded to a residence on Ballad Rd. in St. Albans on Sunday afternoon.
The initial call went to the Somerset County Sheriff's Office and they requested assistance from the Warden Service.
A ground search was initiated in the immediate area of the boy’s residence. The Maine State Police attempted to track him with a K-9 team while other ground searchers looked in wooded areas surrounding the house.
Clues led to a farm pond next door on property owned by the boy’s uncle; the Maine Warden Service Dive Team responded.
Divers entered the water and recovered the boy's body.
The body will be taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office for further examination. The boy's name has not been released.
