Crews continue search for missing child after water rescue at Eastwood MetroPark

Crews are searching for at least one missing child after a water rescue at Mad River Saturday evening. MetroParks officials said the situation is still ongoing.

Crews responded to Eastwood MetroPark around 5 p.m. on Saturday after reports that children fell into the river. At least one child was transported to Dayton Children’s Hospital, but Montgomery County dispatchers did not have any details available about the status of the children.

At least one child is still missing and crews used sonar and dive teams to search for them, scanner traffic indicated Saturday night.

Dispatchers did not know how the children fell into the water. We will update this story as we learn more.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is assisting with the search.
