HURRICANE, Utah — A 4-year-old child reported missing on Sunday morning was later found dead in his home.

Police confirmed to KSL TV‘ reporter Garna Mejia that they don’t know if the death of Kache Dee Wallis was accidental. Mejia reports police haven’t ruled out an accidental death, and hesitate to call the death suspicious.

Authorities received a call at 10 a.m. on Sunday from the child’s grandmother who reported the child missing. The grandmother is his legal custodian.

Police found the boy’s body about 1:30 p.m. after a second search of the home.  

Hurricane police say they do not have a history of contacts with those in the home. They said that there was no obvious sign of death on the child’s body.

Police do not know how long the child was deceased in the home before he was discovered.

More information on this story will be published as details become available. 


HURRICANE, Utah — The Utah Department of Public Safety has canceled the endangered missing advisory issued earlier Sunday afternoon for 4-year-old Kache Dee Wallis. 


HURRICANE, Utah — Early Sunday afternoon, police in Hurricane, Utah, reported that a 4-year-old boy is missing.

Police reported that the boy, Kache Dee Wallis, was last seen as he was being tucked into his bed Saturday night at his residence, 264 West and 200 North, in Hurricane.

Kache is a white male, with light brow medium length hair. He has dark brown eyes, stands 3’6″ and weighs 50 lbs.

He was last seen wearing white long-sleeve Ninja Turtle pajamas and might be with his non-custodial mother, Erika Carrell.

Carrell may be driving a white 2017 Nissan Sentra, with Oregon license plates.

On its Facebook page, the Hurricane City PD said that, at this time, this situation does not meet the specific criteria required for an Amber Alert to be issued.
