Arkansas toddler found dead, 2nd child missing; mother, great-uncle found dead Thursday
Investigators say one of two Arkansas children reported missing after their mother's body was found in a creek has been found dead, and teams are still searching for the other child.
Polk County Sheriff Scott Sawyer says the body of 2-year-old Acelynn Wester was found in a heavily wooded area Friday near the town of Cove, not far from where her mother's body was located earlier this week.
The children's great-uncle was found dead Thursday at his home in a nearby town.
The deaths are being investigated as homicides.
Sawyer says the girl's 9-year-old brother, Reilly Scarbrough, is still missing. The sheriff says officers from eight agencies are searching for him.
The children hadn't been seen since at least Sunday.
