Police discovered a child's body under an icy pond in Aurora, Colorado Tuesday while searching for a 6-year-old who's been missing since New Year's Eve. The body has not yet been identified, according to ABC News.  

Police launched an "intensive search" after 6-year-old David Puckett went missing from his home on New Year's Eve, Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz said at a news conference. 

After Puckett went missing, law enforcement and volunteers went door-to-door, searching a 2.5-mile radius around the boy's home. 

Aurora police, the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were involved in the search.

An Amber Alert was also issued Monday afternoon, offering a $10,000 reward. 


Authorities zeroed in on the lake after conducting a dog search, according to ABC News. 

"I had the unfortunate experience of having to inform David's family of what we found," Metz in a press conference. "We informed the family of where ... we found the individual. And we did let the family know it was going to take some before we could have a positive identification."

Metz added that the boy's family is "devastated."

The area around the pond has been taped off and designated a crime scene.
