  • Raul Gonzalez

The search continues for a missing 4-year-old boy who vanished in Scotland County Wednesday.

Scotland County Sheriff Ralph Kersey said at a news conference Saturday that what's believed to be the body of Raul Gonzalez Johnson was found about 1:45 p.m. Saturday after about 8,000 gallons of water were pumped from the pond.

Authorities believe the body of a 4-year-old who was missing for several days has been found in a pond. Divers had searched it without any luck.

"We're working to make arrangements to drain that pond to be 100 percent certain that Raul is not in there", Jason Kaplan, a supervisory special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said Friday afternoon.

Palmer finished eagle-birdie on the North Course at Torrey Pines for a five-under 67, taking him to 11-under for the tournament. I'm looking forward to playing a full schedule and getting ready for the Masters and I haven't done that in a very long time.

Charlotte Fire officials say they had 24-hour operations as crews scoured the area in a massive search for the boy.

Raul was reported missing Wednesday after he wandered away from his home where he was being watched by his grandfather.

Wooded areas were combed, neighbors were questioned and tracking dogs were brought in to assist.

Friday, FBI and the Sheriff explained they have not drained the pond because they need permission from the landowner. On Friday, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol conducted a roadblock canvass in the neighborhood to talk to drivers. "Raul is still considered missing ... and that's where we are at this moment", Kersey said.
