LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - Searchers have found the body of a missing 3-year-old East Texas boy in a pond near his family’s home.

Authorities say the body of Mason Cuttler was located before dawn Tuesday east of his residence near Lufkin.

Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches says a deputy walking the property and searching for the boy spotted the body near the surface of the pond.

Mason was last seen Monday afternoon playing outside his home. Authorities believe the child wandered away while his parents were cleaning the residence.

The father, Kevin Cuttler, says his son was allergic to some cleaning products so the boy had been playing outside.
