KJAS News has learned that a toddler drowned in the waters of Toledo Bend Reservoir on Friday morning.
The child has been identified as 2-year-old Bow’Hanna Kymirah Elliott, daughter of Aron and Cortlynn Malone Elliott, of Milam.
KJAS News has not been able to reach Sabine County Sheriff Tom Maddox. However, a friend of the family said that the child’s grandmother went to pick her up Friday morning and discovered that the door to the house was open and the girl and her older brother, also a young child, were not in the home.
The brother was found safe, and the Shamrock Shores Volunteer Fire Department confirmed on their Facebook page that the child’s body was recovered from the lake later on Friday morning.
Funeral services for Bow’Hanna Kymirah Elliott are planned for Saturday, July 11th at 2:00 p.m. at Starr Funeral Home in Hemphill.
