Searchers find body of missing 4-year-old in Madison County

MAIDSON CO., Ark. (KTHV) - The body of a 4-year-old has been found after two young Madison County children were swept away in floodwaters Saturday.

CBS affiliate 5NEWS reported that a 38-year-old mother and her two kids were stranded in high water in the Hindsville area. Their truck was swept off the roadway by water into Glade Creek.

The mother attempted to save her children, but the strong waters pulled them out of her arms after they exited the truck.

The body of 4-year-old Damien Wiggins was found in Glade Creek on Monday afternoon. The search continues for his 18-month-old sister Krystal Wiggins.

A family friend has set up a GoFundMe account to help with the children's funeral expenses.
