Autistic boy Braylen Noble, 3, found dead in swimming pool after he 'fell from third-floor window'
POLICE have found the body of Braylen Noble, the 3-year-old Ohio boy with autism who went missing after falling out of a third-floor window.
Cops recovered Braylen's body from the swimming pool at the Hunter’s Ridge Apartment Complex in Toledo, and the Lucas County Coroner’s Office made an official identification, cops said.
Searches for Braylen began last Friday when his mother, Dajnae Cox, called 911 to report that he had fallen out of one of the apartment’s three large windows that had been open and disappeared.
The half-drained pool where the boy was found had been previously searched “numerous times” by live and cadaver dogs, law enforcement and rescue workers, cops said.
“It’s common practice in police investigations, once an area is searched, if nothing found, to go back and revisit that search area and see if anything was missed," cops told WTVG.
Photos shared by the Toledo Police Department show the cops and K-9 units that searched for the missing boy.
Braylen was wearing a red and white Mickey Mouse T-shirt at the time he went missing, cops said.
The FBI had put up a $5,000 reward for anyone with information about the missing boy.
An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday, the Toledo Blade reported.
