Northeast Florida Toddler Dies After Wandering into Pool

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities in northeast Florida say a 2-year-old boy with Down syndrome has died after wandering into a pond.
The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office says Jet Gonzales was reported missing by his parents Wednesday morning. The boy had apparently wandered away from the house through an open door.
Authorities searched for the child for more than two hours before bloodhounds led deputies to a nearby pond. That's where they found Jet.
The boy was pronounced dead a hospital. An autopsy is pending.
Sgt. Chuck Mulligan of the sheriff's office says there's no evidence of foul play.
