Missing 6-year-old found dead

Search crews found the body of a missing 6-year-old Amish girl in a lake on her family's Fleming County property Sunday morning.

Linda Peachey was reported missing since Saturday afternoon.

Multiple teams, a helicopter and dogs were used to search the land.

The focus eventually turned to a lake on her family's property.

Crews searched the lake throughout the night using dive teams and sonar.

Around 8:30 Sunday morning, crews opened a dam on the lake. Members of a dive team located her body around a dock about 15 minutes later.

No foul play is suspected but State Police are investigating the girl's death.
