Authorities say the little boy and his parents, Bridgette and Jessie Dauzat, of Winnfield, were fishing in spillway creek when their son fell in and was swept away.
Divers searched until the sun went down yesterday and resumed this morning. The body was found about a quarter of a mile from where he fell into the water.
The search was a combined effort with more than a dozen agencies, as well as private citizens.
The sheriff says they believe the little boy slipped on a concrete structure and fell into the creek.
Family members kept a vigil at a nearby church.
