Missing Talty Boy's Body Found Early This Morning

June 25, 2018 - 4:37 am

KAUFMAN COUNTY (KRLD) - A missing Kaufman County boy's body has been found in a stock pond near his Talty home.  

Six-year-old Dalton Robertson disappeared at around 3:30 Sunday afternoon.

Dalton was on the autism spectrum and was said to be non-verbal. He had previously attempted to leave the house on his own before, so his parents put double-bolted locks on the front door. 

The Sherrif's Office says Dalton was able to find a key and left the home. 

Dozens of volunteers from neighboring departments, the Department of Public Safety and the Texas Game Warden assisted in the search.

His body was found by divers at about 2 a.m.
