CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Conservation officers are asking hikers and boaters near the Wabash River to be vigilant this fall. This, as another massive search for the remains of 4-year-old Owen Jones comes up empty.
Owen was swept away in Deer Creek while playing at a Delphi park on May 23.
Conservation officers say they made another push to find his remains earlier this week, three months to the day after the tragedy. They've now searched all of Deer Creek downstream from where he disappeared, and several miles of the Wabash River too.
They believe his remains would have been carried into the Wabash by now.
Owen was wearing a blue tank with a red and white star on the front, and blue shorts when he was swept away. Anyone who finds clothes matching that description, or any other signs of Owen should call police immediately.
