MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – A North Mississippi community is mourning the death of a toddler after an apparent drowning late Sunday afternoon.

Pontotoc County Sheriff Leo Mask said Mobley Robinson was almost two-years-old. Robinson was found in a culvert lying in water.

Mask said the boy's mother had just returned home with the child and was getting items out of her car when she noticed the toddler was missing.

Neighbors, authorities and the Pontotoc Search and Rescue Team were called out to help in the search, Mask said. The boy was found about 30 minutes after he was reported missing.

An autopsy is pending for Robinson, but officials do not suspect foul play. They are calling the incident a tragic loss.
