Body of missing toddler recovered from Elk River

| No Comments

Authorities recovered the body of Daisy Jo Holland on Sunday after the toddler had disappeared from an Elk River campground Friday, news sources reported.

Her body was found at 2:30 p.m. Sunday a few hundred feet away from where she disappeared two days earlier, Elk River Police Chief Brad Rolfe said, according to the Star Tribune.

There's no indication of foul play, but the investigation remains open, Rolfe said, the Pioneer Press reported.

Daisy was seen playing near the Elk River before she vanished. Dogs had followed her scent to the river's edge Saturday, police said, according to the Star Tribune.

More than 250 volunteers had been searching the area with authorities over the weekend, the Star Tribune reported.

A second person died within the campground Friday night in an incident unrelated to Daisy's disappearance, Rolfe said, according to the Pioneer Press.
