NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a missing 2-year-old girl has been found dead in a lake at a Brooklyn park.

A spokesman says divers located the body of Ruhshona Kurbonova after a frantic five-hour search Saturday in Prospect Park.

Police say Ruhshona and a 4-year-old boy wandered off from family around 1:30 p.m., Saturday. He was found safe.

Officers combed the 585-acre park while divers searched the murky lake. A police helicopter aided in the search.

The 78th precinct posted and tweeted missing person posters with a picture of the 2-foot tall Ruhshona.
