CHEROKEE VILLAGE, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say a 20-month-old boy who was found in a lake in northern Arkansas has died.

Sharp County Sheriff’s Sgt. Aaron Presser said Monday that the sheriff’s office was notified that the boy died Sunday night at a Little Rock hospital.

Presser says the boy was reported missing Sunday morning from the family’s lake house in Cherokee Village and was later found in Lake Sequoyah. Presser said a deputy found the boy in the lake near a dock.

Presser says the deputy was able to revive the boy, who was then taken to a hospital in Highland before being flown to a hospital in Little Rock.

The child’s name and cause of death has not been released.
