The body of Evan Wesley Reed, a 3-year-old autistic boy who went missing Friday, was found Saturday near the Villages Marina on Lake Palestine.

KLTV in Tyler reports Evan went missing about 5 p.m. on Friday after he was last seen in his house watching TV.

Officials from all over East Texas and even as far as Louisiana participated in the search. Multiple East Texas fire departments, as well as the Smith County Sheriff's Office, Texas Department of Public Safety and many volunteers helped look for Evan.

All of us at KNUE offer our thoughts and prayers for the Reed family.
