  • Divers discovered a child's body while searching for Puckett in this pond near his home on Tuesday

"We found the body of what appears to be a child inside the pond underneath the ice", a visibly shaken Aurora police chief Nick Metz said. There was no "breakage of the ice", Metz said. The Amber Alert was issued due to the passage of time and cold weather. According to police, he has a slight to moderate learning disability.

Temperatures have dipped below freezing since David's disappearance, and his mother Stephanie Puckett said through tears in a public appeal for help that he left home in just a light coat.

Police have received several tips but none have panned out, Sgt. Chris Amsler said. The family told police that he has wandered away before, but not like this.

The Federal Bureau of Infestation was called in to assist the over 150 local police members and 200 volunteers who combed the area after an Amber Alert and a $10,000 reward for the boy was issued Saturday.

During a police briefing, authorities said they were using a bloodhound from their K-9 unit, while Denver Police Department Air One Helicopter said it was equipped with an infrared system.

'David, he is a good kid, ' she said.

Earlier, volunteers were called to join the search, which has been confined to a 2.5-mile area.

The remains have not been identified but it's believed that they are David's

The FBI have also reportedly been aiding the police department in conducting "thorough" neighborhood searches and providing their extensive resources.

Fox 31 Denver reports that police are now looking for any residential or commercial surveillance video from the area where David vanished.

The family searched for David for an hour before calling Aurora police.

David is 4 feet tall and weighs 47 pounds. He was last seen wearing camouflage trousers, a black shirt with a tan coat and black and orange boots.

The AMBER Alert describes David as a white male with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Tip lines have also been set up.
