The body of a 2-year-old who wandered away from his Monroe-area home Friday afternoon has been found.
Searchers located Grayson Hill’s body about 3:30 p.m. in a creek about 35 feet from his home, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
Authorities are not investigating the death as suspicious, sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said, adding that the child most likely walked into the creek.
Grayson was last seen by his parents around 12:20 p.m. at the home in the 12700 block of Woods Creek Road. The couple called 911 about 20 minutes later to report that he was missing, the sheriff’s office said.
