The bodies of a man and three young children were recovered from an Indianapolis pond, police said Wednesday.
Although police have not released the names of the deceased, in a news report release Earlier this week, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department asked the public for help “in locating 27-year-old Kyle Moorman and his three children, 1-year-old Kyran Holland, 2-year-old Kyannah Holland and 5-year-old Kyle Moorman II. .”
In a statement on Wednesday, police said there was “agreement with the search for missing persons belonging to the Moormaan family”.
Moorman and his children have been missing since July 6, when he told his family he was going fishing, NBC News’ affiliate WHTR reported.
IMPD said they responded to a call just after 7:30 p.m. ET Tuesday and, with the help of fire divers, recovered the body of a man who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sonar technology later located a black Saab in the water, the statement said. “That vehicle was pulled from the water and three young children were found in it,” it added.
IMPD Asst. Chief Chris Bailey told WHTR the vehicle matched the description of the car Moorman was driving when he was last seen.
Earlier this week, the same area was searched by officers on foot and with drones.
Police said a “death investigation” had been launched, adding that the Indianapolis-Marion County Forensic Services Agency is assisting.
