A four-year-old St. Albans boy was found dead Sunday afternoon around in a farm pond near his home.

The Maine Warden Service responded to a home on the Ballad Road in St. Albans regarding the missing boy. The initial call went to the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office and they requested assistance from the Maine Warden Service.

The Maine State Police attempted to track 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.

Game warden divers entered the water and recovered the boy’s body at approximately 6:50 PM in seven feet of water.

The body will be taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office for further examination.

The case remains under investigation.
