LOCKHART, Texas (AP) — Officials say the body of a 3-year-old girl who went missing along a flooded Central Texas creek has been found.

Caldwell County emergency manager Martin Ritchey says the child's body was recovered from the rain-swollen creek near Lockhart late Tuesday night. She had been reported missing about six hours earlier as storms moved through the area.

He says officials originally got a report of two missing children, but a 4-year-old boy was able to get out of the creek.

Lockhart is located about 30 miles south of Austin.
