Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office said a missing child was found in a lake after going missing at a July 4 fireworks celebration Friday night.

Police said the family was attending a show at the club house and lake in the Lake Wilderness 2 subdivision in western Spotsylvania County. They noticed the girl, 7, was missing and, after searching for a half hour, called 911.

Authorities determined the girl had been seen in or near the water shortly before she disappeared. Divers were called in and the girl’s body was discovered in the water.

The identity of the victim is being withheld at this time.
