The body of a toddler who went missing in Michigan was found Monday morning, a day after the child disappeared.
Emergency crews found the body of 1-year-old Noah Alan Jordan in a creek about a mile away from where he was reported missing, according to the Kent County Sheriff’s Office.
“Obviously it’s [a] very difficult time for [the] family, for the community, to find out that Noah did not survive,” said Sgt. Eric Brunner. “Our investigators are with that family, walking alongside them at this time. It’s a time of grieving and a difficult process, so we’re going to provide whatever support we can.”

Authorities began searching for Jordan after he was reported missing just after 11 a.m. Sunday. Footprints were found near the creek's shoreline, but it could not be confirmed if they belonged to Jordan, according to WOODTV.

The sheriff's office does not suspect anything criminal in Jordan's disappearance, as “oftentimes, kids just wander away," Brunner said.
