Missing 8 Year Old Hephzibah Boy Drowns

Richmond County deputies are investigating a heartbreaking story out of Hephzibah, Georgia. A missing 8-year old boy was found dead in a neighbor's pool early Sunday morning.

Deputies were called to Hunters Mill Court around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night to search for the missing child. The home is located just off Old Waynesboro Road.

Deputies say Jon Quentin Stevens was visiting family friends just down the road earlier in the day.

When deputies learned that the home had a pool, a dive team was called in. The boy's body was found in the water around 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

No word on if charges will be filed.

An autopsy is pending.
