“It’s a sad but good day, because at least the mother knows where the child is,” Bizzell said.

Volunteer Donna Mitchell, one of the rescue volunteers, said that when the girl’s body was found after two days of exhaustive search, the volunteers “did the only thing they could do.”

Volunteers formed a circle to pray for the Hispanic girl after finding her body.

“We prayed and God has brought one of them home, he has one at home,” he said. “I’m still worried about the kid, it breaks my heart,” Mitchell said.

“Everyone is overwhelmed,” Bizzell said. “The family is very sensitive, the agents are overwhelmed. I am overwhelmed. Whenever we deal with a case involving children, as long as it is someone’s child, someone’s loved one, someone’s sister, I am overwhelmed, ”the sheriff added.

The teams were still searching for water, land and air for a 4-year-old boy who disappeared at the same time in Smithfield. The second infant is about Abraham, Alexa’s younger brother.

WRAL noted that Wayne County is lending its helicopter to assist in the search.
