This is every parents worse nightmare. 

Update: A tragic end has quickly developed in the disappearance of 18 month old Mason Cunningham.

His body was found at the end of the Ten Mile Canal this morning at about 9 a.m. - about 4 miles downstream from his home.

18-month-old Mason Cunningham was last seen at about 8:30 p.m. last night at his home in Nampa off of Ustick and 11th Avenue.

He was outside in the yard when a family member who was watching Mason went around back to change the irrigation. A few minutes later Mason was gone.

Original Article: According to KTVB, The Canyon County Sheriff's Office and searchers are focusing on Ten Mile Creek which is by the little boy's home.

Dogs were brought in to help find the little boy, but they turned up nothing. An Amber Alert was not issued, because apparently they didn't suspect he was abducted.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. I can hardly think of a more awful tragedy.
