A 9-month-old baby swept away in flash flooding in Pennsylvania last week is still missing, while the body of his 2-year-old sister was reportedly found on Sunday after being dragged nearly 30 miles.
“We have no words to describe how we feel except truly heartbroken. But, the pain we feel is a far cry from what these families have been through,” the Upper Township of Makefield Police Department posted on Facebook on Sunday.
A search continues to try and find 9-month-old baby Conrad, who was reportedly swept away alongside six other people on July 15 when flash flooding hit Bucks County, Pennsylvania, CBS News reported Sunday.
A road where 11 vehicles were located was also submerged by five feet of water, which would have carried in its wake three of them, triggering a large rescue to rescue the individuals caught inside their vehicle.
A total of seven individuals – including two children, a couple aged 74 and 78, and three women aged 32, 53 and 64 – are believed to have lost their lives after being swept away by the waves.
On Friday, authorities reportedly managed to locate the body of 2-year-old girl Mattie Sheils, nearly 50 kilometers from where she was lost to sight, but her little brother is still missing, according to the American media.
