Missing 2-year old in Bartholomew County


On November 26, 2021 at approximately 5:59 a.m., Bartholomew County Deputies were dispatched to the 1700 block of Blessing Road in regards to a truck that had been located in the east fork of the White River by duck hunters. 

The duck hunters located a truck in the White River that was submerged with one occupant. The occupant was transported by EMS to Columbus Regional Hospital where he is being treated for exposure of hypothermia. During the course of the investigation, it was learned that the individual had his two year old daughter with him.
