STARKE, Florida (AP) - Deputies in Bradford County say a 2-year-old boy apparently fell through the broken lid of a septic tank and died.

The Florida Times Union reports the boy was found dead inside the tank after going missing from his Starke home Wednesday evening.

Sheriff's Capt. Carol Starling says family members called 911 after searching for Aiden Wyatt Howard on their own for about an hour.

Officials say Aiden must have slipped through a hole in the concrete lit covering the septic tank.

Officials with the sheriff's office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the medical examiner and the Department of Children and Families are investigating the death.

No further details were immediately available.
