MADISON COUNTY (KFSM) —  Family members confirm to 5News that the body of 18-month-old Krystal Wiggins has been found.

Madison County Sheriff’s Office states that the Search Team found the child’s remains three miles west of Glade Creek in the War Eagle area on Saturday (May 6) afternoon.

This location was approximately 10 miles from where the vehicle entered the water.

The search for her was suspended on Thursday (May 4), Madison County Sheriff Rick Evans said.

Three people, a 38-year-old woman, her 4-year-old son, Damien, and 18-month-old daughter, Krystal, were stranded in high water in the Hindsville area on Saturday (April 29).

Water then carried their truck off the roadway and over a low water bridge on County Road 7320, according to an MCSO press release.
