Noah Alan Jordan's body was discovered a mile away from where he was last seen.
Noah Alan Jordan disappeared at 11 am on Sunday from his mobile home in the Cutler Estates in Kent County. Late Sunday, the search had to be halted due to safety issues as water levels rose. The search resumed the next morning when the little boy was discovered. According to The Daily Mail, the one-year-old's body was found the next day in a Michigan creek a mile away from where he was last seen. The cause of death has not been determined. The KCSO had been leading the investigation with searches at several areas around Division and M-6 on Sunday afternoon. They had been searching via air, land, and water since Noah went missing, according to a press release. Aerial drones, boats, and canine units were also involved in the rescue efforts. Sadly, the one-year-old's family did not receive good news.

Dutton Fire Department, Gaines Township Michigan wrote on Facebook: We must regretfully inform the public that have been following and searching that the efforts to locate Noah reached a tragic conclusion this morning. This morning Noah’s body was recovered from Buck Creek, approximately a mile north from where he was last observed, by search and rescue teams. The family has been requesting privacy, and the public is being asked to refrain from traveling to the area and to respect their wishes. Many thanks to Cutlerville Fire for managing fire/rescue operations, the Kent County Sheriff’s Office for leading the investigation and overall effort, and to the myriad of state, county and local resources that responded from throughout West Michigan. Our hearts are heavy for Noah’s family and everyone that worked so hard to bring him home. “Oftentimes, kids just wander away,” Sgt. Eric Brunner told WOOD-TV before the body was located. “One minute you see them and one minute you don’t, so there’s nothing to lead us to believe that there was anything suspicious or criminal in nature.”
