GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - Police say the body of a missing 2-year-old girl has been found inside a well in western Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police said the body of Laynee Wallace was discovered Monday near Glasgow. Police say Wallace was reported missing last week.

Authorities found the child’s body inside a well on property owned by her mother’s boyfriend, 25-year-old Anthony Barbour. According to state police, Barbour lived with the child’s mother and her daughter in his home near the Barren County and Monroe County line. Barbour was arrested Monday during a traffic stop.

Police said that in addition to a custodial interference warrant that was sought earlier, Barbour was charged with adult kidnapping, first-degree burglary and resisting arrest stemming from his apprehension on Monday.

An autopsy was performed, and results are pending.

It is unclear whether Barbour has a lawyer.
