POLICE have confirmed that a man’s dead body was found in the water near the possible last known location of a father and his three children, who vanished on a fishing trip.
Kyle Moorman, 27, and his three young children were last seen in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will not name who the person is, but Moorman’s family said his Google account was pinged in that area near Bluff and Troy.
Officer Samone Burris confirmed that the body of an unresponsive adult man was found in the water, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The public has been asked to avoid the 2900 block of Bluff Road as police continue their investigation.
Police said the identity of the man pulled from the water would be released by the coroner. The Sun’s requests for information from the Marion County office weren’t immediately returned on Tuesday night.
Kyle Sr told relatives he was taking Kyle Moorman II, five; Kyannah Holland, two; and one-year-old Kyran Holland to fish along the White River.
There were reports that the family was seen at a Cracker Barrel in Whitestown on Sunday, July 10, but they were later debunked.
Now, relatives of the family have said they are worried about their safety.
Moorman’s mother, Natasha Hayes, told Fox59: “This is not like him.”
“He would not let us worry like that, not when he’s got all three of the babies.”
She added: “My grandson has to take medicine, he has a chronic cough with asthma.
“Me and him are really close; he’s never done this before.”
She continued: “I don’t see him not getting in contact with somebody in his family.”
“He would have got help if he was capable, that’s what’s worrying me.
“Something’s not right. Something’s wrong. I really feel in my gut.”
Moorman’s mother added: “I think he’s hurt, and we just don’t know where he’s hurt, we don’t know where he is at.
“If we can find where his car is, then maybe that can lead us to where him and those babies are.”
The Moorman family was last seen in a 2009 black four-door Saab, according to local reports.
Kyle’s sister, Mariah Moorman, was helping other relatives search by a pond on Monday, July 11.
She told The Indy Star: “As far as we know, he was coming out here to go fishing. That’s what he told my sister.
“It’s not odd. He does it all the time. They go night fishing a lot.”
She added: “There’s three kids missing. This is unreal.”
A missing person flyer reads: “Kyle Moorman is described as 5’10”, 125 pounds, brown hair, and hazel eyes.
“Kyran Holland is described as 2’6”, 25 pounds, blonde hair, and blue eyes.
“Kyannah Holland is described as 2’0”, 15 pounds, blonde hair, and blue eyes.
“Kyle Moorman II is described as 3’7″, 40 pounds, blonde hair, and blue eyes.”
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has said at least one of the children may need medical care.
