UPDATE: Missing boy found dead
An eight-year-old boy missing for almost two days was found dead this morning in the Baraboo River in Sauk County.
Searchers found the body of Joseph Anderson of rural Reedsburg around 8 a.m.
Sheriff's officials say it's too early to tell if the death was suspicious, and an investigation is underway.
Joseph was last seen about 3 p.m. Wednesday when he stepped outside his house to play alone. His father reported him missing Wednesday night.
A ground-and-air search took place yesterday, and the state Justice Department sent an endangered missing persons alert to police and other institutions throughout Wisconsin.
