Four-year-old autistic boy Jayden Morrison was found dead in a pond after going missing in South Carolina on Christmas Eve.

Coroner Robert Edge told local media outlets that the body of Jayden was found late Friday morning in Little River, northeast of Myrtle Beach, The Associated Press reported.

Police, first responders, K9 units, dive teams and volunteers had been searching for the boy since he disappeared from his grandmother's house around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The New York boy's family had been visiting his grandmother. His mother, Tabatha Morrison, had gone shopping and left her three children at the home.

Jayden's grandmother, Carolyn Sumpter, said minutes later, she noticed the front door was ajar and began the search.

"We've always been in a gated situation," Jayden's father, Andre Morrison, told reporters said Thursday afternoon after he arrived from New York. "We knew he was a wanderer when he was younger, but he was always in an enclosement. We never put him in a position to go out and freely wander."

More than 150 volunteers had taken part in the search for Jayden on Friday.
