Missing girl found alive
By: Associated Press
MOMENCE, Ill. - A five-year-old Villa Park girl who disappeared almost two days ago while boating on the Kankakee River walked up to searchers Friday, hours after her grandfather's body was pulled from the water.
Kankakee County Chief Deputy Ken McCabe calls it "a bittersweet moment" because of the death of 62-year-old David Klamecki of Momence.
But McCabe says searchers were ecstatic to find Hannah Klamecki alive.
McCabe says they were surprised and happy to find the girl alive. He says she appeared to be in good condition. They gave her food and water and took her to a hospital as a precaution.
