Body of missing Kentucky 2-year-old found in well

GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) — Police say the body of a missing 2-year-old girl has been found inside a well in western Kentucky.

Multiple news outlets report the body of Laynee Wallace was discovered Monday afternoon near Glasgow. Police say Wallace was reported missing last week.

Authorities found the child’s body inside a well on property owned by her mother’s boyfriend, 25-year-old Anthony Barbour. According to state police, Barbour lived with the child’s mother and her daughter in his home near the Barren County and Monroe County line. Barbour was arrested Monday afternoon during a traffic stop.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the child’s cause of death.

It is unclear if Barbour has a lawyer.
